Carrie was the butt of every joke.  She always got teased and she always got made fun of without any second thought.  One day she got a prank done to her that was ludicrous and cruel and one of the people who pulled the prank thought what she did was wrong.  So she tries to make it up to Carrie by convincing her boyfriend to ask Carrie to the prom.  Carrie thinks it's all a joke.  But she gives in and agrees to go to the prom and that's when chaos breaks loose.  The final prank pushes Carrie over the edge.  If you want to read a psychological thriller that will toy with your mind although it's a bit gruesome at times, and learn how Carrie gets her revenge against the town, read CARRIE by Stephen King.  (Billy R., 8th grade student, Rundlett Middle School, Concord, New Hampshire)
