Along the way the two of them meet three boys, best friends, who help them search for their family member.

The five young people hide out at an abandoned fish hatchery near the lake and help the orphans keep from being discovered. In the process, this “bunch” sets into motion events that draw a lake community together.

This is the first novel of a series of experiences five children have at Bass Lake, Indiana, where children spend lazy summers having fun, getting into and out of humorous situations, and solving mysteries that intrigue them. Find out what adventures await “The Bass Lake Bunch” in this, their first adventure that brings them together and makes them the best of friends.
