From the Back Cover

GraceAnn has a reputation at school—as a straight-A student. But in her senior year, the stakes are higher, the stress is mounting, and after a bad breakup with her boyfriend, her grades begin to slip. Taking a path she never anticipated, GraceAnn soon finds herself caught in a twisted trap. Will one bad choice cost her everything? Can she trust God to forgive her for the mess she’s made and help her make things right?

Every teenage girl has a secret. And every teenage girl loves hearing someone else’s secret. But some secrets are big enough to detour, derail, or even destroy a young person’s life. Each of Melody Carlson’s Secrets novels will propel readers into a world where promises are broken, life is not fair, and challenges can make or break them, while ultimately helping readers discover that solid faith, loyal friends, and a persistent spirit will see them through.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best books I have read! September 30, 2012
This is probably the best book I have ever read by Melody Carlson! I could relate to the main character even though I have not cheated as she did, but the way she had academic pressures on her because of her own expectations and others really hit home! I also really loved her breakthrough that she had with God! I thought it was so heartfelt and really touching! It was a big reminder to me that God needs to be above EVERYTHING including school! Plus it showed me that God still loves us for who we are even if we let others down as well as ourselves! I highly recommend this book! You will not be disappointed!

5.0 out of 5 stars GraceAnn June 11, 2013
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This book is a part of a series of books intended for teenage readers but it should be read by all ages. "Trapped" explores parental pressure and student action due in part to that pressure. As the main character finds out, one bad choice leads to another and another. But there is always redemption through confession. A great book for any age reader.

4.0 out of 5 stars When you are Trapped where do you turn to ? July 18, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
GraceAnn was the perfect student , the one who got Straight-A's and never did a thing wrong and had everything going for her. That was until her Senior year when her boyfriend dumped her and everything like a domino effect started collapsing. First her grades started to slip ever so casually and then soon she finds herself getting D's and F's and digging herself into a deeper hole of grade hell. At this rate, she realises that she may never get into Stanford and follow her dream career. When GraceAnn overhears a conversation and discovers that students are cheating all around her, she decides that maybe it might help her just this once to get her grades back up to scratch but what happens when she finds that the temptation and hold to get good grades via cheating is strong . What starts as one ends up being more and eventually instead of payment via cash , GraceAnn finds herself in a predicament as Dirk the guy in charge of the cheat sheets wants Oxycontin and that means GraceAnn has to steal from her family's pharmacy ? Will GraceAnn be able to rise from the ashes or will it take her to be trapped and stuck in a corner before she realises that though the consequences may be deadly and result in her committing academic suicide , she must do what is right.

Another amazing story by Melody Carlson whom in Trapped has covered the Edgy issues of Break-ups , Cheating and Drug Dealing.
