In the early morning on April 18, 1906, a terrible earthquake struck San Francisco, California. Lizzie Newton, who had been staying with her grandmother, woke up frightened but unhurt. She helped her injured grandmother out of the apartment building. People across the city left their homes for fear that the buildings might collapse.

After Lizzie's grandmother was taken to the hospital, ten-year-old Lizzie was on her own. She had to make her way to her parents without any help. Could she find them? Would they be all right?
