In one way or another, everybody abused Carrie. This sixteen-year-old misfit was forbidden everything that was young and fun by her fanatical mother. She was teased and taunted by her classmates, misunderstood by her teachers, and given up as hopeless by almost everyone.
But Carrie had a secret: She possessed terrifying telekinetic powers. And so one night, when feeling scorned and humiliatedand growing angrier and angriershe became the vengeful demon who let the whole town -- and all the people in it -- feel her power.

I read this book back in the '80's and loved it.
