Sam needs to find a seventh-grade science fair project and a way to save the restaurant where his father works. When he enrolls three friends in an effort to raise bees on a hotel roof in New York City, the complications multiply.

Added to all that is the mystery surrounding a potentially devastating syndrome called “Colony Collapse Disorder.”
