“Seven high school students get trapped in their school during a blizzard. The storm turns into a once-in-a-lifetime nor'easter and the supposed overnight stay turns into days, as the snow piles up higher and higher. The interaction and ingenuity of the students as their problems increase will keep you intrigued. Highly recommend for readers of all ages!”
— Barbara Rodean, A Likely Story, Sykesville, MD

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. . . .
