    One thought on “Trap Jam”

    1. Who doesn t want to follow their dreams That s exactly what 16 year old Olivia is doing by joining a band as their drummer the only thing is she is lying about her age in order to get in Then there is the bad boy lead singer Lucas who has caught her eye but remember what is on the outside isn t always what s on the inside As for school she is falling asleep in class and coming in hungover which can only lead to disaster This is a book that is for the YA crowd with a lot of life lessons.I receive [...]

    2. Those Lorimer books are hard to rate I understand, they are meant for poor readers, hoping to get them interested with stories touching their daily lives, and create new interest for books among middle school students or freshman or sophos in high school Does it work A little, I think, and every bit helps Here, Olivia wants to play drums, and to be in a band She cheats a bit about her age, the school she attends and s so happy to be the drummer that she does not much further When Lucas shows his [...]

    3. I love the SideStreets series Designed for teens who don t have a lot of time, experience, or desire to read, they still manage to write great books with hard realities that many teens can relate to This type of book is particularly valuable to my library because we are also helping students learn English as a second language When a student gets to read one of these books, they don t feel self conscious about reading them So, I ll just start off with my little disclaimer of how much I love these [...]

    4.

    5. As a secondary teacher I am well aware that there is an increasing market for YA Fiction that caters to the needs of our reluctant readers, These readers tend to prefer shorter stories, usually Contemporary Fiction that focuses on themes and ideas directly related to the target audience Trap Jam along with other stories published in the Sidestreets imprint certainly reaches out to this audience The question as to whether or not this is successful remains to be seen I fear that sophisticated rea [...]

    6. This book went into a completely different direction than I thought it would and that was a nice surprise I liked the fact that the author chose to incorporate music as a background for what would quickly become a scary and horrific scenario kind of feels as though I was lured into the whole thing and I loved it.Yes, this book is hard to read, unfortunately, it also portrays a reality that is all too wellll real and Olivia falls into the whole thing I am not sure why, because I would have liked [...]

    7. 16 year old Olivia wants to follow her dreams in music by joining a band and begins lying about her age and then continues to weave a bunch of lies until it all finally catches up with her.Trap Jam is good for what it s intended for, to attract reluctant teens and young adults to read, and maybe even enjoy it For a quick read, Steven Barwin delves into many different teenage issues such as underage drinking, relationships, etc and does so successfully view spoiler It was great to see that in the [...]

    8. Initially, I was pulled into the story, but then it sort of started fizzling away and I found myself rolling my eyes at some of the scenes While it was evident that Olivia had problems, particularly having to do with drinking, the other stuff like pretending to be in college so she could stay in the band and putting up with Lucas s nonsense was too unrealistic to me One thing I did love about Trap Jam is the diversity, and the fact that the main character was a musician Aside from that, it was a [...]

    9. Trap Jam, with its plot centered around the music world, explores many topics issues that will resonate with middle and high school students following dreams, underage drinking, healthy unhealthy relationships, standing up for what is right, knowing when to be independent and when to ask for help Its lower reading level makes it accessible to struggling or reluctant readers I received an ARC from the publisher through NetGalley.

    10. Read via netgalley2.5I didnt like too much the book I think there was too many things happening Alcohol , obssesed boyfriend, Dreams coming true, drums, lies, it was too much and none of them was to develop Some thing were too superficial I think the author must have had to write in just one or two things, not many things and do it the right way, or a meaningfull way.
