Sneak A Peek Saturday: PANIC by Sharon M. Draper

Sneak a Peek Saturday is a feature that I like to indulge in because I cannot wait to read the tasty excerpts that are available for us ravenous readers to enjoy. 

This week I am showcasing PANIC by Sharon M. Draper. The concept of this novel is highly intriguing to me. The idea that a wrong choice made can completely alter our existence is fascinating and equally frightening to me.  How many of us make a decision that seems ordinary but the outcome is anything but that? Our choices define us and I like reading a novel that reminds me of that.

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.
