Trapped by Michael Northrop


Quite, possibly the very worst snow storm ever, hits a small little town. The city and its inhabitants are at the mercy of this snow storm. Cellphones are the first to go and then electricity. It is cold and bitter and seven students are trapped inside their high school.

Scotty Weems narrates this chilling and enthralling book. Northrop writing makes you feel the bitter coldness and the feeling of isolation, with little or no hope in sight.

The character's are typical teens --- and Northrop captures the dire situation beautifully.

Overall, I enjoyed the story but the ending was rather abrupt and unsatisfactory.

Grade: B
