Cover Reveal: Panic

Today the cover of Panic, Lauren Oliver's next book, was revealed. Lauren Oliver is the author of Before I Fall and the Delirium trilogy. I believe Panic will be a standalone just as Before I Fall is. Although I was disappointed with the end of the Delirium series, I believe that Lauren is a fantastic writer, and I look forward to reading Panic next year.

Personally, I am not to fond of this cover. The font is exactly the same as the font used on the cover of Before I Fall and all the covers of the Delirium trilogy. Plus, it seems as though all the covers of her YA novels have faces on the cover. Why not be a bit more original and change the font or do something else for the cover besides having faces? I think it looks exactly like it belongs in the Delirium series. Change it up and use a different style. Put the unoriginal factor aside, and I still don't like it. Aren't covers supposed to capture a person's attention? A cover with a girl looking sideways with her hair blown all over definitely would not get my attention at a bookstore or library.

Release Date: March 4, 2014

"Panic began as so many things do in Carp, a dead-end town of 12,000 people in the middle of nowhere: because it was summer, and there was nothing else to do.

Heather never thought she would compete in Panic, a legendary game played by graduating seniors, where the stakes are high and the payoff is even higher. She’d never thought of herself as fearless, the kind of person who would fight to stand out. But when she finds something, and someone, to fight for, she will discover that she is braver than she ever thought.

Dodge has never been afraid of Panic. His secret will fuel him, and get him all the way through the game, he’s sure of it. But what he doesn't know is that he’s not the only one with a secret. Everyone has something to play for.

For Heather and Dodge, the game will bring new alliances, unexpected revelations, and the possibility of first love for each of them—and the knowledge that sometimes the very things we fear are those we need the most."

What do you think of the cover of Panic?
