Continuity mistake: In the book, when Ben meets Eddie and Bill in the Barrens, they ask Ben if they know Richie and Stan. He says that he knows Richie but doesn't know Stan. Eddie then says that he probably doesn't know him because he started school late. This was because he got sick a lot when he was a kid. He also mentions that Stan just finished the fourth grade while the others just finished the fifth. But a few chapters later, when Ben meets Stan, they said that they know each other because they were in the same second grade class. So, did Stan really start school a year late, or did he start at the same time as the others? And if he did, how did Ben and Stan end up in the same second grade class? Pages 294 and 304.
