Summary of Book
Helen Crenshaw has felt unsure of herself since her mother died a year ago. When Helen's class studies volcanoes, she wonders of the nearby Mount St. Helens could erupt, even though most people think it is harmless. Then an earthquake shakes the land, and Mount St. Helens begins to change. Nearby land is evacuated. When the volcano does not erupt, people want to return. When Helen figures out that her brother Chad is planning to climb the mountain, she finds her courage and rushes to the mountain with her father to save Chad and his friend. They escape by car as the volcano erupts.
