What would you do if your best friend and fellow scientist suddenly moved away in the second week of fourth grade?   Phineas L. MacGuire, Mac for short, has a problem.   The Science Fair competition is coming up soon and he and his best friend (who moved away) had planned to win this contest with their fantastic volcano experiment.  Now everyone else is already paired up for their science projects except Mac and the most annoying new boy in the class, Ben.   Will he really have to work with obnoxious Ben?    Read this book to find out how Macís science fair dreams erupt.   (Jean B.
