Solving the mystery of the sinister Noqumiut carries a set of friends far beyond the innocence of their small Pennsylvania hometown. Santa and his merry elf magically appear in June running for their lives from a town hall fire; a teen girl flies her Cessna from the scene of a refinery explosion; and a dating pair leave a dead body on a leather couch - wrapped in a full-length mink coat and holding a red gift bow in its hands. Fourteen year-old catcher Peter 'Chumbucket’ Miller and his best friend pitcher Mike DeSorcier are on a mission to capture their youth league World Series championship. Spying on a league meeting from a sweltering attic perch they uncover a group of extra-dimensional beings infiltrating the league’s leadership. The boys gradually discover two things: they are in mountains of trouble and they need help. Assistance (and more trouble) arrives in the form of two daring and mystifying girls - Karen Croft and Jo Munro. The four friends share adventure, romance, intrigue and danger throughout three hectic summer months. The spirited foursome receives timely aid from unlikely sources: an Eskimo shaman; a magic stone carving of a seal; a loyal dog; and an opponent from Roswell, New Mexico whose talents (and origins) may literally be out of this world. The Summer Set is a humorous, intense, action-packed story about friends, enemies and the pursuit of winning it all. The novel is suitable for all readers ages twelve and up.
