An exuberant, bighearted novel about two teenage misfits who spectacularly collide one fateful summer, and the art they make that changes their lives forever

Sixteen-year-old Frankie Budge??aspiring writer, indifferent student, offbeat loner??is determined to make it through yet another summer in Coalfield, Tennessee, when she meets Zeke, a talented artist who has just moved into his grandmother's house and who is as awkward as Frankie is. Romantic and creative sparks begin to fly, and when the two jointly make an unsigned poster, shot through with an enigmatic phrase, it becomes unforgettable to anyone who sees it. The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers. We are fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us.

The posters begin appearing everywhere, and people wonder who is behind them and start to panic. Satanists, kidnappers??the rumors won't stop, and soon the mystery has dangerous repercussions that spread far beyond the town.

Twenty years later, Frances Eleanor Budge gets a call that threatens to upend her carefully built life: a journalist named Mazzy Brower is writing a story about the Coalfield Panic of 1996. Might Frances know something about that?

A bold coming-of-age story, written with Kevin Wilson's trademark wit and blazing prose, Now Is Not the Time to Panic is a nuanced exploration of young love, identity, and the power of art. It's also about the secrets that haunt us??and, ultimately, what the truth will se… (mere)

Gosh I loved this book. Kevin Wilson is a tremendous writer. The plot was so fresh - so crazy but believable at the same time. I loved the character development and felt so much for these kids. Best novel I have read in ages and I have read some good ones! ( )

In 1996 two teenage loners meet and decide to combine their talent for art and writing to create posters that they plaster all over town. They attract more attention than they could ever imagine and things get out of control.

I really enjoyed the characters, the story, and the 1990's culture. Wilson's plots are always delightfully unique. ( )

This was really a 3.5 for me, but I rounded up due to the great writing and the messages in the story. There just wasn’t a lot that happened so the actual story fell a little flat for me. I love Kevin Wilson’s writing and LOVED Nothing to See Here. Poignant elements in this rounded it up to a 4 ( )

Interesting book about 2 teenagers who create a poster which leads to craziness. Frankie and Zeke. ( )

Zeke and Frankie are outcasts that find each other. They spend one summer hanging out, having fun together, and creating an art project that eventually gets out of hand. Zeke creates the artwork and Frankie writes the quote. Thanks to a stolen copier, her brothers' idea, she is able to make many copies of the poster. Zeke and Frankie decide to take the copies and spread them around the town. What comes next is total chaos and a summer that no one forgets. This is the second book I have read from Kevin Wilson and now I want to read more. ( )

"I think maybe art is supposed to make your family uncomfortable," he offered.
"Are you guys boyfriend and girlfriend?" Andrew interrupted, pointing the tip of his slice of pizza at Zeke in a way that only my brothers could make look threatening.
"We're friends," I finally said. "We're FRIENDS."
"Good friends," Zeke offered, and I nodded to him like, Yeah, duh, but also like, Shut up, my brothers will try to ruin me.
"Well, I for one think it's great that Frankie has found such a good friend for the summer."
"Frankie has no friends," Brian told Zeke, like maybe he was stupid and didn't understand how weird I was.
The edge is a shantytown filled with gold seekers. We are fugitives, and the law is skinny with hunger for us.
He took the map out of his backpack and searched until he found the geographic location of this abandoned house and made a star with his pen. He held it open and we looked at the stars on the map. Even though Coalfield seemed like the dinkiest place on earth, when we counted the stars, all the open space that was still unmarked, I felt a little overwhelmed. I felt like maybe I wouldn't be able to sleep until the whole map was a single constellation.
