Waiting on Wednesday: Panic by Sharon M. Draper

Waiting on Wednesday recognizes that we as bookies pine for books. This post is about what I am impatiently waiting for right now. It was started by Jill at Breaking the Spine.

I am very intrigued by my selection this week. Sharon M. Draper is no stranger in the YA world, but I have managed to miss reading everything she's published so far. That will end with this book. Panic coming out March 12, 2013 is sure to keep my attention. The premise sounds so innocent and completely conceivable that I am itching to get my hands on a copy! Read on.

Panic coverThis gripping and chillingly realistic novel from New York Timesbestselling author Sharon Draper shows that all it takes is one bad decision for everything to change.

Diamond knows not to get into a car with a stranger.

But what if the stranger is well-dressed and handsome? On his way to meet his wife and daughter? And casting a movie that very night—a movie in need of a star dancer? What then?

Then Diamond might make the wrong decision.

It’s a nightmare come true: Diamond Landers has been kidnapped. She was at the mall with a friend, alone for only a few brief minutes—and now she’s being held captive, forced to endure horrors beyond what she ever could have dreamed, while her family and friends experience their own torments and wait desperately for any bit of news.

From New York Times bestselling author Sharon Draper, this is a riveting exploration of power: how quickly we can lose it—and how we can take it back.

From Goodreads

Who would have thought to make a book about that? I mean you hear about stranger danger and teaching kids about "tricky" adults, but what if you just simply misjudged someone? I can't imagine what would be going through my mind or the minds of the loved ones worried about me. I'm truly looking forward to what Sharon has in store for us! 

Have you read any of her books? What were your thoughts? What are you waiting on this week?

I haven't read any Draper either but this one looks absolutely fascinating. I'm freaked out just by the premise.
