The Traz takes a reader on a roller-coaster ride through the eyes of Katrina - from her days as a toddler doted on by father, to the sad reality of neglect by a drink-fuelled mother, and then tragedy strikes. Orphaned but classed as intellectual can be a major handicap in more ways than one, and Katrina's teen years become a time of rebellion. With rebellion comes trouble from the wildly tempting realm of bikers, but unknowing criminal elements exist and prove dangerous indeed.

In all innocence and misguided belief a gang's word is its honourable oath she's drawn into a close-knit circle, but nothing is quite what it seems. In deep by her own volition and suddenly aware of her own failings can she get out and resume sense of normality? Not knowing which way to turn for help in her plight, an undercover cop gives new hope but is he what he seems? Has Katrina lost her chance at happiness and of that which she craves most: love and true friendship? This is a hard-hitting novel and no shirking on the grim reality of stepping to the wrong side of the street and that of the laws of the land.

The Traz is a YA book and part of the BackTracker series that explores the good choices and bad choices that young people can sometimes make. Katrina gets herself involved with a biker gang and witnesses things no young girl should. The man mountain Shrug, one of the bikers, takes her under his wing but for what reason? Does he have an ulterior motive? Is Katrina in over her head and who will protect her? Is Shrug all he appears? And, who is the new mysterious biker Chad? Well worth a read!

I have to say this book is unlike anything I've read before. Katrina (or Sarina as she calls herself when she joins the Traz) is a real chameleon. A thirteen year old going on twenty five, she is gifted, strong-willed, savvy and quite manipulative at times, yet there are moments when we get to see the child she really is. We start her journey at home with a policeman father and a mother whose drink problem will change Katrina's life for ever. When this happens she eventually drifts towards the tough world of a biker gang where drug dealing and killing are the norm. Shrug becomes her protector, but is he really all he seems? And then there is the younger, good-looking Chad. There is a definite connection here which doesn't quite happen (probably because he is aware of her age) and makes me wonder what is in store for them both in the next book. The whole thing ends on a knife edge and I can't wait to read the next instalment of the Backpacker Series. Thank you Eileen, after reading The Traz I came away wanting more!

Written for older children, tweens and teens to help those in trouble or give options how to avoid trouble in these often emotionally and physically cruel years. Author Eileen Schuh has written this version as a school edition. There is also a regular edition. Every parent should read this book and perhaps even discuss it with their kids. This story is full of the pitfalls that multiply as teens get older, become more street smart and more in need of security and love. Some strong language as can be expected, the language of young people caught up in street life of which drugs and gangs play a large part.

Katrina is very small for her age, and extremely intelligent, actually Mensa certified, a genius at the age of 12. These two points are the root of bullying Katrina, causing her to leave school at this age. An alcoholic mother and a father who is too involved do not help ease the pain and loneliness. Very dark and frightening, how could such an intelligent, sunny little girl get dragged in to this vortex of the dark side? A lesson for all in the early part of the book. As Katrina, or Sarina as she prefers to be called in the world she has entered, loses all the usual types of security, she becomes involved with a motorcycle gang, the Traz, when she accepts a bike ride from a very interesting biker. Who is this man vying for control of the gang? Why is he so protective of Sarina?

This is a very interesting book from a lot of points of view. Not all dark, there are many characters running the gamut from gentle and caring to pure evil. Traumatized after witnessing an event she can't remember, Katrina/Sarina's story will continue.
