Warren and Betsy are supposed to be working together on a class project about Mount Saint Helens. Instead, Warren is testing one of his grandfather's inventions, a time travel machine called the Instant Commuter. The invention touches a picture of Mount Saint Helens, zapping Warren to the mountain. He arrives the morning before it is to erupt - May 18, 1980. To save him Betsy must figure out how to work the Instant communicator from home. She will have to go back to Mount Saint Helens and find him. Can she do it before the volcano erupts?  (Jeannie Bellavance for Pennsylvania Young Reader's Choice Awards)
