Praise For The Girl Who Loved Tom Gordon…
The New York Times
San Francisco Examiner
An absorbing tale...Tom Gordon scores big.
A delightful read, a literary walk in the woods, and not just for baseball fans.
The Wall Street Journal
Impressive...A wonderful story of courage, faith, and hope. It is eminently engaging and difficult to put down.
New York Daily News
A fast, scary read...King blasts a homer...[He] expertly stirs the major ingredients of the American psyche -- our spirituality, fierce love of children, passion for baseball, and collective fear of the bad thing we know lurks on the periphery of life.
St. Louis Post-Dispatch
King paints a masterful, terrifying picture of every child's (and maybe adult's) worst fear...King uses that creepy-crawly paranoia to perfection.
Plenty of thrills...[King's] an elegant writer and a master of pacing.
