Gordie Lachance is a very insecure boy. His parents don't seem to like him because his brother died in a car accident and they think it should've been him. He has no one, except his friends Teddy, Vern, and most of all his best friend Chris. Chris is the only one he can depend on. All four of them go on an adventure to find a dead body. Gordie is a writer as an adult.
