90 Second Review: Trapped by Michael Northrop

Trapped book cover If you ever wondered whether an entire book could be written where nothing of import actually happens, then wonder no more: It can. But not necessarily can it be done well. I had high expectations for Trapped. You take a bunch of diverse characters and lock them in a room together for days on end with limited resources and see what happens. The possibilities are endless, but it seems several teens trapped by a freak snow storm in a high school only merits one fist fight and pissing in a can. (There was a death, but it was almost peripheral.) And the ending was the worst kind of cop out.

Personal rating: 2/5 stars
