“It was so strange, the way that life moved forward: the twists and the dead ends, the sudden opportunities. She supposed if you could predict or foresee everything that was going to happen, you’d lose the motivation to go through it all. The promise was always in the possibility.”
Lauren Oliver, Panic

“She knew, now, that there was always light—beyond the dark, and the fear, out of the depths; there was sun to reach for, and air and space and freedom.
There was always a way up, and out, and no need to be afraid.”
Lauren Oliver, Panic

“The Bravery was in moving forward, no matter what. Someday, she might be called on to jump again. And she would do it. She knew, now, that there was always light–beyond the dark, and the dear, out of the depths; there was sun to reach for, and air and space and freedom.

There was always a way up, and out, and no need to be afraid.”
Lauren Oliver, Panic

“They had their own language, their own jokes. They were constantly touching each other too – pushing and shoving, pinching and hugging, like kids flirting on a playground.”
Lauren Oliver, Panic

panic is the legendary game in the small town of carp where the contestants play a high stakes game of facing their fears in order to win the jackpot.I have so many mixed emotions about Panic, It was extremely slow paced in parts but overall I constantly had the edge of my seat anticipation of what crazy challenge they would have to do next. I did feel like slapping the panic contestants the vast majority of the time for their blatant stupidity, selfishness, immaturity, greediness. I did feel like they showed almost a suicidal craziness at some parts, It’s like Hello you can’t spend the money if you’r laying there dead!!
