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

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 firststep 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.

Known to many as the father of modern horror writing, Stephen King is the voice of the underbelly of small-town America for a generation of readers. Making his name as the author of cult classics (with an equally strong legacy of film adaptations) including  Carrie, The Shining, The Green Mile, IT, The Stand, Pet Sematary, Under the Dome and The Tommyknockers as well as the bestselling Dark Tower series.
