Chip Street hated school. H e couldn't read as well as the other kids. Classmates teased him and called him dumb. His mother told him not to listen to those kids. She said he was very smart, and someday he would show everyone how smart he is.
In middle school, Chip discovered that he
was good at building things. He built a battery operated motor and made a little vehicle that could fly. He couldn't wait to enter his invention in the Science Fair at school. But before it had been tested, his father lost his job and had to take another job halfway across the country. He made Chip promise not to use his invention until he returned.
When Chip, his sister, and two friends find themselves stranded alone in the house, with snow up to the roof, Chip faces a difficult decision. Should he break his promise to his father and use his invention to try to get them out? His decision must be made quickly when an avalanche threatens to destroy the house they are in and most of the town.
