Stephen King is one of the most prolific authors of the modern age whose last name isn’t “Patterson.” He’s written 60+ books in his career, and doesn’t appear to be slowing down any time soon. Dozens of his stories have been adapted for film & TV, and even that number has been increasing over the last couple : Katie Mclain. I think Bev is what King wants a girl to be. but for an actual girl she doesn't make much sense. She reads a lot like a fantasy and not a fully developed character. That doesn't mean I think the book shouldn't be read, but it does mean acknowledging that the portrayal of a young and vulnerable girl is pathetically bad.
