Carrie by Stephen King

High school can be tough at the best of times, but for Carrie White, her school years are nothing short of hell.

Relentlessly bullied by her peers during the day, Carrie’s home life is just as unforgiving, courtesy of a deeply-religious and over-bearing mother. Carrie’s life is a never-ending circle of hate, control and torment, caught in a web of extremes that refuse to let go.

But Carrie has a secret, one which her world is about to discover. With her new-found telekinetic powers, and a thirst for revenge, this high-school loner is about to unleash her fury in a way few could ever have imagined.

Carrie is the terrifying tale of a shy girl pushed to the brink of madness; her fear turned into a hatred-fuelled thirst for revenge that will leave none in her wake.
