As a kid growing up in New York's Upper East Side, Johnny D. Saster had a rich, privileged existence. But when it came to personal freedom, he had no existence at all under the thumb of his demanding, overbearing parents. It nearly cost him… his mind. Pushed by his parents to succeed, he suffers an extreme panic attack during his SATs, leaves the test room in a daze and walks right into traffic on Fifth Avenue. People suffering from anxiety live in a world of hurt. PANIC is the uplifting tale of a young man navigating the emotional peaks and valleys of panic disorder. It's a modern-day Wizard of Oz-like journey of self-discovery and personal triumph… an endearing teen's surmounting of some very debilitating mental health challenges afflicting millions, young and old alike, around the world. Tragic and funny in parts, readers will feel the raw emotion in this highly imaginative, wildly fanciful coming-of-age tale and love story, set largely in the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York. An added bonus: an entire musical soundtrack, from the lyrical band, Social Void, is embedded in the ebook.
