Trapped! Cages of the Mind and Body is a collection of short stories by authors such as Rob Thomas, Marc Talbert, and Lois Duncan. Pancakes, by Joan Bauer, was a great story about a young, perfect girl that is flabbergasted by an experience she has as a waitress. She realizes how not-to-be-trapped by her own perfectionism. In Lois Lowery’s story, A Matter of Getting Out, two teen boys learn that they can’t outrun a mistake and have to pay the consequences of their actions; trapped. Tunnel Rat Dreaming also shows how experiences throughout life can easily leave one trapped in their own mind.

Trapped! Cages of the Mind and Body was a great collection of short stories; however, a young teen may not understand the meanings in all of the stories. An older young adult will enjoy this collection. Of course, there were a couple not-so-exciting stories, but this may actually motivate the reader to continue for the next story!
