The day started like any other day for Scotty Weems, a high-school sophomore at Tattawa Regional High School.  He worried and chatted about the same old things Ö the basketball game (would it be cancelled because of snow?), the school dance on Friday (is Pete really taking Marissa?), and his best friendís gokart (should I stay after school to help him build it? Why is he building one anyway?  How old are we?). But the day did not end like any other day for Scotty. The snowstorm of the century made sure of that.  He was stuck at school, in the cold, with his two best friends, two cute freshman girls, a complete weirdo, and the scariest guy in school.  Still worrying, but not about basketball or the dance -- instead, the worries were about what they would find to eat.  How they would stay warm.  All the while, the snow continued falling and falling, and all of them continued waiting and waiting -- for someone to pick them up from school.  Someone who would never show up.  If you have ever wondered how it would feel to be utterly trapped, with no possibility of escape, read Trapped by Michael Northrop.
