On the Maine-New Hampshire branch of the Appalachian Trail, where nine-year-old Trisha McFarland was to spend Saturday with her older brother, Pete, and her recently divorced mother. When she wanders off to escape their constant bickering, then tries to catch up by attempting a shortcut through the woods, Trisha strays deeper into a wilderness full of peril and terror. Especially when night falls. Trisha has only her wits for navigation, only her ingenuity as a defense against the elements, only her courage and faith to withstand her mounting fear. For solace she tunes her Walkman to broadcasts of Boston Red Sox games and the gritty performances of her hero, number 36, relief pitcher Tom Gordon. And when her radio's reception begins to fade, Trisha imagines that Tom Gordon is with her -- her key to surviving an enemy known only by the slaughtered animals and mangled trees in its wake.
Things for a poster:
map, red socks emblem, walkman with earphones, dark forest with trampled bushes, stream, small gnats (bug), girl with lots of scratches, ghost apparition, scary eyes looking through branches, moon, #36 (tom gordon's jersey #), & faith
Hope this helps!

a few things I remember from the book- she had headphones but was worried about losing battery power, she was being stalked by a bear (wolf? sorry), she loved the Red Sox baseball team- she and her dad were huge fans. She wandered off a trail and got lost- spent several days alone in the woods- she had to cross a swamp which terrified her but she made it across, her last night in the woods she got to listen to a sox game on her headphones. Whenever Tom Gordon hit a homerun, he'd point at the sky- thanking God- when she was in the hospital (after they found her), when she saw her dad, she pointed at the sky- like Tom Gordon- thanking God. I hope that helps:)- great book!
