The story centers on 12-year-old Trisha McFarland when she strays from the path while she and her recently divorced mother and brother take a hike along a branch of the Appalachian Trail. While lost for days, she finds herself wandering farther and farther astray, relying on her portable radio for comfort. A huge fan of Boston Red Sox relief pitcher Tom Gordon, Trisha listens to baseball games and fantasizes that her hero will save her, but also discovers that nature isn't her only adversary as something dangerous is tracking her through the dark woods.
