Waiting on Wednesday: Trapped

Waiting on Wednesday is a Weekly Meme hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine

Book: Trapped by Michael Northrop
Release Date: February 1, 2011
Publisher: Scholastic Press
Genre: Young Adult
Description:
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…

So, this book has been described as The Breakfast Club meets The Shining. Now, tell me - does that not peek your interest!? I know it's got me on board. I have been meaning to read Micheal's novel , Gentlemen, I've heard such great things about it. Hopefully people will love Trapped as well!
