Eileen Schuh’s “The Traz” which is the first novel in the BackTracker series is a compelling read that will keep you turning pages.
The heroine, Katrina, is orphaned at 13 and left with nowhere to go and no one to turn to. She is brilliant (a member of Mensa), wealthy and beautiful. She meets Shrug, a much older biker and member of the The Traz motorcycle gang.
She goes with him to live at the Traz’s compound in the backwoods of Alberta. At the compound Shrug protects her from the other gang members but uses her intelligence and youth to discover intel on the gang and their drug dealings.
With what she has learned about the gang’s dealings she realizes she will never be able to leave the compound alive. That’s when Chad, an undercover cop joins the gang. Will he be her ticket out?
This is a great novel with some life lessons to be learned. It is classified as Young Adult but adults will enjoy it too!
