The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by Stephen King

Listen to Jodi talk about it at 12 minutes in the show podcast below:

The acclaimed #1 New York Times and undisputed King of Horror Stephen King offers a frightening suspense novel about a young girl who becomes lost in the woods as night falls.

On a six-mile hike on the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, nine-year-old Trisha McFarland quickly tires of the constant bickering between her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. But when she wanders off by herself, and then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut, she becomes lost in a wilderness maze full of peril and terror.

As night falls, Trisha has only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, and only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fears. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox baseball games and follows the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio’s reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her—protecting her from an all-too-real enemy who has left a trail of slaughtered animals and mangled trees in the dense, dark woods…

This is an excellent book! Not as “creepy” as some of King’s stories can be, but definitely suspenseful!

I read this book years ago when I was siphoning Stephen king without regret.
I thought this book was so different from his other stories and really enjoyed it.
It follows a little girl who gets lost in the woods and her survival.
I’m planning on reading this again!
