Item description for Whitney Stows Away on Noah's Ark: And Learns How to Deal With Peer Pressure (The Emerald Bible Collection) by Therese Johnson Borchard & Wendy VanNest...
Overview Whitney, along with her friends, makes fun of a computer nerd who is always well prepared for class. Later, in reading her Emerald Bible, she is transported to the story of Noah and the Ark. She learns that everyone made fun of Noah, too, but that he was the only one to survive the flood.
Publishers Description As the new kid in school, Whitney is relieved when someone else is the butt of class jokes. Pat Chan, or PC as the kids mockingly call him, uses a laptop to take notes in science class. Whitney participates in the taunting, though she isn't happy when it turns mean. The boy has his own quiet revenge when a big test is announced -- and everyone knows that only PC will pass.
Both unprepared for the test and upset she joined in the teasing, Whitney uses her grandmother's Emerald Bible to travel back in time to sort out her feelings. She lands in ancient Israel just as Noah is finishing up the ark to the jeers and ridicule of his neighbors. Then the heavens open, and Whitney becomes a stowaway to survive the flood. In the ark she's befriended by Moses' son and learns about resisting the pressure of others, a lesson she brings with her back to school.
