Rounding Third


Rob Wardell is a seventeen-year old who feels like he doesn’t quite fit in anywhere–not at home, not at school and not on the baseball field. The small, shy boy stays on the high school baseball team only to please his father since he knows he will never get to play. He’s living his life alone until he finds himself drawn into a friendship with the team’s new star pitcher, Josh Schlagel. The two boys hit it off instantly; maybe it’s because Josh isn’t exactly welcomed by the team either. But as Rob and Josh grow closer and start spending more time together away from the field, Rob realizes this his friend is hiding something. The bruises on Josh’s body and his reluctance to let Rob know about certain parts of his life have Rob suspicious. When Josh’s secrets are finally revealed and become life threatening, Rob and his family must step up to the plate.

Praise for Rounding Third

This is another wonderful book and I enjoyed it. It’s a coming-of-age story that’s well-written and pulls the reader along the same path as the main character. Interesting and entertaining. I loved it and would highly recommend it. – Trekermt I found time last night to read "Rounding Third". Once I started, I could not put it down. While I am not an avid reader, I do not recall ever reading any book straight through. Whatever your background, life experiences or sexual orientation, this book is a story that needs to be told over and over again. Every living soul has to one degree or another faced the challenges of youth, feeling different and sense of not belonging anywhere. It is a must read!!  Thank you for sharing this with the world.     - Bill Kelly I did enjoy your book very much. The plays were real and exciting and I liked the characters. It’s a good read. - Luke Terpstra "I started reading Rounding Third yesterday and got to chapter 35 and woke up this morning just having to pick up and continue reading. I'm so hooked! Your writing makes you feel like you are right there and like me, I'm sure many people can relate in some way. I can't wait to finish the book tonight. Thanks for such great work and letting me 'hang out with Rob and Josh' for awhile. Seriously, this story needs to be made into a movie."  - Justin Sanchez I was actually cursing you as I read it, because I really couldn't put it down! I read it in 24 hours. Great job.   - Lynne Margolis, Freelance writer
