Stanford's summer plans are now shattered. He can't attend basketball camp where his basketball idol, Alan Scott, will be coaching. With star power, Stanford rocks the court, but will he be able to pass the summer course? Failure would mean officially being held back in 6th grade, not that that means anything to Stanford. But if Stanford can't go to 7th grade, he can't play on the basketball team- as the only 7th grader chosen for the A-team, moving forward means a lot to Stanford.
However, Stanford can't tell his friends, the Roadrunners. Their names are Gus, Tico, Stretch (Steven), and Digger. Let them know, and he must kiss his social life goodbye. Or so he thinks. Let Emily Ebers, the girl of his dreams know, and he must kiss this possible girl friend goodbye. Or so he thinks. Can Stanford keep this secret- forever?
When the truth finally surfaces, Stanford finds his real friends-his teammates- still standing by his side.
