By: Micheal Northrop Plot The day the blizzard started, no one knew that it was going to keep snowing for a week. Thats for those in its path. The three best friends Scotty, Pete and Jason are the 3/7 kids who are waiting to get picked up from . Then they realize that no one is coming for them. Still, it doesn't seem so bad to spend the night at school, especially when hot Krista and Julie are sleeping just down the hall. Then when the power and heat goes things start to get serious. The kids are now forced into thinking about ways to survive in a cold school, that means food, water, lots of clothing and a place to sleep. Setting The story takes place near Boston, Massachusetts in a High School named Tattawa High School during the winter time. All of the scenes in this book take place in the school like in the hallway, classes, bathrooms and cafeteria. Theme The theme of this book should be to never lose hope and to never give up because the kids still try to believe that there parents are coming to pick when they know that there not. Throught the story they are faced with many obstacles like: not having any food to eat, not having heat or power, not having water and very little clothing but through there determination to survive they will over come the hardships ahead. Characters The main characters of this novel are (Scotty, Pete, Jason-childhood friends), Krista, Julie, Les and Elijah. .

Pete: Pete is just a normal kid with an average intelligence and hes definitely not a jock like Scotty. He listened to rock music and wore whatever he got for Christmas or his Birthday. He enjoyed playing video games and eating pizza rolls. . Jason: is just like Pete except Jason is fascinated with wars and military stuff and enjoyed building things. . Les Goddard: Les Goddard is bad news he's the kind of guy you just assume is armed in some way example: Razor blade or Box cutter. The kids saw him as dangerous(total psychopath). . Elijah: Elijah was a strange and odd kid who was very shy. . Krista and Julie: Krista and Julie where two pretty freshman girls who are very popular with the boys. Conflict The conflict in this book is mostly about when there faced with obstacles like having no food, no water, no heat or power and little clothing. But Les Goddard is really hard to deal with when he wants something like when broke the door to get in to the cafeteria when Scotty said he should wait till lunch time.The conflict in this book is interpersonal one. It involves Les versus the other characters, instead of the kids being against the storm its the kids against Les. By: Brandon Mcisaac
