Michael Northrop, TRAPPED
YA about a group of seven students trapped inside a school during a blizzard. As the snow climbs higher and higher, tensions and troubles escalate. Stories of sequestered teens often remind me of The Breakfast Club (anybody remember that movie? Molly and Judd and the earring?), though this book is life-and-death, the way so much YA is now. Sometimes I wish more books generated their raw emotional power by way of the interactions among the characters.
