This classic King novel about a bullied high school girl with telekinetic ability taking revenge against her tormentors is now pop-culture famous. Although the plot may be familiar, the story is worth a revisit, and the book is styled in a powerful and original way quite distinct from King’s later work, peppered with invented news reports, scientific studies on telekinesis, first-hand accounts, and police dispatches. "Carrie" is full of unforgettable, complex characters and seethes with dueling veins of cruelty and compassion. Bring the paperback on a road trip or be the creepiest kid reading this in the corner at summer camp (that was me, and I turned out ok).
