In 1980s Washington state, Mt. St. Helens is rumbling. Twelve-year-old Maribel isn't concerned at first, despite officials evacuating her neighborhood. Her family is convinced it's just a precaution, even as the mountain continues to rumble. Maribel decides to disobey orders and return home for items she and her sister left behind - just as the volcano finally erupts. As ash rains down, Maribel realizes she must learn to focus if she's going to survive.

History made personal by experiencing it through a fictional character. Survival stories are perennial favorites. Focus of female main characters allows girls to see themselves (and boys to see girls) as integral parts of history.
