This is our Going on a Journey discussion board for February 2017's pick -- "The Body" by Stephen King.

Feel free to discuss pivotal plot points, reveal spoilers and discuss the plot in detail on this thread.

The story takes place during the summer of 1960 in the fictional town of Castle Rock, Maine. After a boy named Ray Brower disappears and is presumed dead, Gordie Lachance and his three friends (Chris Chambers, Teddy Duchamp and Vern Tessio) set out to find his body.

The four boys walk about 40 miles east of town on this journey!

Challenge: Join the Castle Rock boys on their adventure! Walk, jog or run the distance from Castle Rock to the body. This equates to 40 miles, or approximately 1.43 miles per day.

Did You Know? This novella inspired the 1986 film, Stand By Me?

First Person to reach the body = 40 points
2nd & 3rd Place to the body = 35 points
4th+ Place to the body = 30 points

Finished this novella today. Glad I finally read it, but boy, not relatable to my childhood or experiences, that is for sure.

I do really like this movie though.
