  • Be careful not to include spoilers!
  • Share the title and author as well so that others can add the book to their To Be Read list!

My Teasers:

Alright, I am giving The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon another go.  I had to put it down because it was starting to give me the heebie jeebies.  I am soldiering on and really like it (although admittedly will only read it during the day).  So here goes…

“Breaking out of her own stillness, Trisha took off her other Reebok and knotted the laces of both sneakers together.  She hung them around her neck like cuckoo-clock pendulums, debated over her socks, and decided to leave them on as a kind of compromise (as an oog-shield was the thought that actually went through her nind). ” pg. 103

From the Publisher:  The world had teeth and it could bite you with them anytime it wanted.  Trisha McFarland discovered this when she was nine years old.  At ten o’clock that morning in early June she was sitting in the back seat of her mother’s Dodge Caravan, wearing her blue Red Sox batting practice jersey (the one with 36 GORDON on the back) and playing with Mona, her doll.  At ten thirty she was lost in the woods.  By eleven she was trying not to be terrified, trying not to let herself think, This is serious, this is very serious.  Trying not to think that sometimes when people got lost in the woods they got seriously hurt.  Sometimes they died.

  1. It does sound scary but kind of good too – thanks for sharing

    • Hi Andrea. I had never even heard of it, but saw it at my local library’s book sale and picked it up. It is really good so far! It also is not a long novel (like some of King’s can be), so makes it a quick read. ~Deanna
