Scotty, a fifteen year old sophomore has two thing on his mind, Krista and basketball, and attends high school in the middle of nowhere. As the snow starts falling in the morning, students wait for school to be cancelled. This does not happen and by the time school dismisses for the day,Â there were blizzard conditions. At the end of the day, seven students waited for rides from their parents, including Scotty. No one came for them. There was no cell phone service, lights, heat or water. This is a story of seven people, not really friends, coming together to survive. It was as if no one knew they were there. With Scotty telling this story,Â I felt as if I was there with them. At the end, I felt there were some issues left unsolved, but I liked the book because the students were able to work together with minimal disagreements.
