I thought the book was pretty good but the movie was much better. This book is a scary kind of non-fiction book. It tells how mean some people can be and how nice a person can be. For instance, being mean like when Carrie gets pig blood dropped on her while she is sitting as a queen at the prom and all the people keep laughing at her. One of the girls who were teasing her felt bad so she told her boyfriend to take her to the prom instead of her.
