Why don't you just let the man write his books and not worry about whether it's true or not. He's obviously doing something right. How many books did you publish?

uh...yeah,I know a lot of kids who would be that levelheaded in that situation. I also know a lot of forty-year-olds that would be screaming ninnies, so don't base courage on age!

I agree w/most of the people here, most kids would be pretty rational. Their heads are not filled up with as many fears as an adults would be.

Ahh my friend, even though in many of his books he says something to the affect of, "I am sorry if this story is anything like something that happened in your life" or something like that...he changes where things and places are so that people can't accuse him of writing a story about them.

I really don't know if she has died and I just don't care... it isn't that important! And this is not the first time that Stephen King writes about something that doesn't exist. Does Castle Rock exist??

Bonhomme_Man is right. It is called 'artistic license. For J (lolapxy13@juno.com) - I think there are lots of points in the story where she is NOT very calm or rational. People, even kids, tend to fade in and out of emotional states during stressful periods. Sustained hysteria is not something the mind or body tends to maintain. For Vampiregordy - It's been awhile, but I think she wakes up in the hospital and everything is okay. I hope I'm not remembering it incorrectly.

I agree, but isn't anyone else bothered by the fact that this girl who is what, ten or eleven, is acting like an extremely levelheaded fourty year old? Fiction or not i know quite a few ten year olds and don't think that they would 1, be so damned calm and collected while lost in the forest, then sick, and chased by an evil being and 2, use the word sh*t so much.

I guess this doesn't belong here but i need to know the answer!!! Does Trisha die in the end of the book??? The book ends her falling asleep... then says Game Over... Is "game over" a reference to baseball or her life? does she she fall "asleep" and game over? or am i reading into it too much? Also the book is called THE GIRL WHO LOVED TOM GORDON not WHO LOVES... please help me... either post here or email me at vampiregordy@bigpond.com.au no one i know has read it.. thanx in advance
