Waiting on Wednesday

Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Breaking the Spine.

This week's pick is Michael Northrop's upcoming Trapped, from Scholastic January 1, 2011.

Summary:
Scotty and his friends Pete and Tommy are among the last kids waiting to get picked up at their high school. The snow has been coming down for hours, and it's starting to look like no one is coming for them. As the snow piles higher, their teacher Mr. Gossell leaves them behind to seek help--and disappears into the drifts outside. Now the seven remaining students are on their own, with no food and no electricity, facing a night of sleeping on classroom floors. Will their friendships survive the night . . . and will THEY?

My Thoughts: Getting stuck at school would suck. Stuck during a blizzard-- that would be horrible. The one advantage to this group is at least they are friends, but it's well known situations like this can bring out the worst in people between the close quarters, hunger and fear. Trapped looks like a great thriller with plenty of intrigue to go along with it, not to mention just how bad things can get when several teenagers are stuck inside.
