Book 63 - Trapped
My sixty-third book was Trapped by Michael Northrop. To me, this book was like The Breakfast Club mixed with The Day After Tomorrow. Northrop's style of writing was pretty cool; the way he kept hinting at the bad things that would happen later made you want to read faster. The only thing I didn't like was the ending. I don't like when books end in a way that you don't know what happens to the main characters. This is one of the worst I have ever read in that way. Scotty Weems is on the basketball team and the only thing he is thinking is his first game, which has been canceled because of the stupid snow. Even though it's coming down pretty hard, Scotty and his friends Pete and Jason stay in the shop classroom for an hour or two after everyone leaves. When they finally realize that this snow storm is going to be pretty bad, they make their way to the gym, where a teacher and four other students are waiting for their rides. By this point, Northrop has informed us that, not only will this storm be considered the worst in the history of the United States, but not everyone in our little group will survive. The seven kids have to try to figure out how to survive and how to get along, being that most of them are not only from different grades but different cliques as well. Kind of like The Breakfast Club, except with less swearing and more death.
