Carrie is an American novel of the horror and science fiction genres. It was written by author Stephen King and published through Doubleday Publishing Group. It was first released in hardcover edition on April 5th, 1974. The story revolves around eponymous Carietta "Carrie" White - a 16-year-old girl who develops the psionic ability of telekinesis. Due to her rigid Christian fundamentalist upbringing, which yields a complete lack of social skills, Carrie becomes the target of extreme ridicule from her classmates at Ewen High School. Now, one must ask themselves: How much body-shaming do you think a telekinetic chick who is half off her rocker to begin with willing to take before she decides to unleash a psychokinetic ass-whuppin' upon the whole town? Exactly 199 pages, that's how much.
