The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon by: Stephen King: Nine year old Trisha is tired of the arguments between her brother and mother, so one day when they go out on their usual Saturday morning adventures, Trisha strays off the path. What happens you stray off a trail path? You get lost, that’s what. She finds herself in situations she rather not be in for a nine year old. She uses her radio to help her stay in touch with the real world and with her hero the baseball player, Tom Gordon. The novel gives a good insight to saying, “the world has teeth and it can bite you”. The plot was extremely compelling as the reader had no idea if she would be rescued, and to see if her hero, Tom Gordon would show up. This novel was short and sweet, told in the typical King fashion with just enough scare to give the readers goosebumps; but it was something a little different as King wrote in the point of view as a nine-year-old girl, which was something fresh to read.
