Why is Marty’s friend a girl?


Hi, I am a 4th grade student. We just read and watched the movie Shiloh. I have one Question,why is Marty’s friend a girl? Also will Judd change in the up coming books since he gave Marty a collar? Thank you for your time and I hope you can get back to me.

In the Shiloh books, Marty’s best friend is named David Howard.  But the movie producer felt that they should add a girl, just so girls would like the movie.  But of course they gave her a boy’s name, “Sam,” short for “Samantha.”   If you read the last three books in the Shiloh quartet, you will find out a lot more about Judd and his relationship with Marty and Shiloh.
