Panic (YA)


Book #88 Read in 2013
Panic by Sharon Draper (YA)

This book focuses on a group of high school students who are taking dance lessons.  They bond together and that helps when one of them, Diamond, leaves the shopping mall with a strange man and goes missing.  Her friends struggle to cope with the loss and the possibilities of what could happen to her.  Meanwhile, Diamond is enduring horrible things.  This book does not graphically describe those but you have enough information to put the pieces together.  I read this book in one sitting; I had to find out what happened in the end to Diamond.  As if that was not enough drama, there are parental issues, domestic violence and unrequited love among the dance crowd.
