Panic

By Sasha Dawn

A page-turning story about a teen's struggle to overcome her fears on her quest for truth, strength, and stardom.

Madelaine loves music, loves the stage, and loves performing. When she finds a fragment of poetry that inspires her to finish a song she's been writing, she tracks down the poem's author online in hopes of starting a collaboration. But as more pieces of the poem find their way to her, she realizes the online poet can't possibly be the one who's leaving them for her. At the same time, some shocking family secrets upend Madelaine's home life. As Madelaine struggles to separate the images people present online from the realities of who they are, her quest for truth, strength, and stardom takes turns she never expected.

  • A departure from Sasha Dawn's previous novels, this is a tale of self-discovery.
  • Written with the page-turning pacing and suspense of Dawn's other work.
  • Deals with the all-encompassing influence of the internet on modern teens' lives, self-images, and perceptions of reality.
