Nine-year-old Trisha McFarland is lost in the wilderness of the Applachian Trail after wandering off from her mother and brother. For solace she tunes her Walkman radio to Boston Red Sox broadcasts and the gritty performances of her hero, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. As she gets more and more lost, and as the days and nights pass, she imagines that Tom Gordon is with her -- her savior to surviving an enemy known only by the slaughtered animals and mangled trees in its wake. It is a fairy tale grimmer than Grimm, but aglow with a girl's indomitable spirit and told in stunning three-dimension.
The novel version of The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon was a nominee for the Washington State Evergreen Young Adult Book Award, a 2000 YALSA Best Book for Young Adults, and a 1999 nominee for the Bram Stoker Award for Superior Achievement.
Stephen King's first pop-up is sure to captivate his fans of all ages.
