General YA Fiction

G/A Northrop, Michael. Trapped. Scholastic Press, 2011. 232p. 978-0-545-21012-6. 17.99.

Seven teenagers are trapped in their high school while a huge snowstorm passes through their New England town. The snow does not appear to be letting up and everyday it grows higher and higher, covering the roads and burying the nearby houses. Tensions inside the school rise with the snow. These seven unlikely friends must figure out how to survive, not knowing how long they will be stranded. It’s like Breakfast Club without the detention. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
