Twelve-year olds Joe, Tiger and Chris break out of
summer baseball camp to secretly trail Joe’s parents, who have lied to
Joe about a mysterious trip they’re taking. The boys must piece together
clues, avoid their parents, dodge the police, trust a stranger – and not
destroy their friendships in the process – during an adventurous road trip in
their last summer before junior high. In the spirit of Stand By Me,
Rounding First is a coming-of-age tale set in the summer of 1980.
