First came the blood. Then came the power.

Carrie White is no ordinary girl.

Carrie White has the gift of telekinesis.

To be invited to Prom Night by Tommy Ross is a dream come true for Carrie - the first
step towards social acceptance by her high school colleagues.

But events will take a decidedly macabre turn on that horrifying and endless night as she
is forced to exercise her terrible gift on the town that mocks and loathes her . . .

Stephen King's legendary debut, about a teenage outcast and the revenge she enacts on her classmates, is a perennial classic. CARRIE is the novel which set him on the road to the Number One bestselling author King is today.
