Carrie by Stephen King.
Carrie is a novel by American author Stephen King . It was his initially distributed novel , discharged on April 5, 1974, with a rough first print-keep running of 30,000 duplicates. Set fundamentally in the then-future year of 1979, it spins around the eponymous Carrie White, a maverick and harassed secondary school young lady who utilizes her newfound supernatural forces to correct vengeance on the individuals who torment her. While in this procedure, she causes one of the most noticeably awful neighborhood catastrophes the town has ever had.

King has remarked that he observes the work to be "crude" and "with an astounding energy to hurt and stun." It is a standout amongst the most much of the time prohibited books in Joined States schools. A significant part of the book utilizes news sections, magazine articles, letters, and passages from books to tell how Carrie crushed the anecdotal town of Chamberlain, Maine while demanding vengeance on her cruel schoolmates and her own mom Margaret.
