I wonder if Mr. King was publishing this today (2011) if it might not be tougher, scarier, more troubling. I wonder if the last 11 years of “young adult” books might not have changed the overall tenor of this story. Maybe not. As it is, “The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon” feels flat. I was never too concerned for Trisha McFarland. Good story. Interesting premise. Fairly tame. Fairly? Check that: very. Seeking a jolt? You're better off at the coffee shop.
