Trapped by Michael Northrop
The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. That for those in its path, it would become not just a matter of keeping warm, but of staying alive. . . .
Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason are among the last seven kids at their high school waiting to get picked up that day, and they soon realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn’t seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when distractingly hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. But then the power goes out, then the heat. The pipes freeze, and the roof shudders. As the days add up, the snow piles higher, and the empty halls grow colder and darker, the mounting pressure forces a devastating decision. . . .
I went into this book expecting a harrowing story of survival, sacrifice and hope. But I didn’t get any of that. None of the characters ever fully developed and because of that I did find myself rooting for anyone. Overall, the story just felt flat. Nothing really happened the entire book. I kept reading on in the hopes of a big twist, heartache or conflict but was left with nothing. This book made me feel trapped, 1 out of 5 stars.
