Synopsis

Innocence and beauty ignite with evil and terror...

First, a man and a woman are subjects of a top-secret government experiment designed to produce extraordinary psychic powers.

Then, they are married and have a child. A daughter.

Early on the daughter shows signs of a wild and horrifying force growing within her. Desperately, her parents try to train her to keep that force in check, to “act normal.”

Now the government wants its brainchild back—for its own insane ends.

One of the better King books. A great what if dealing with government experiments with drugs, much like they did LSD; only this drug had some powerful side effects. Charley, a rare heroine in the King universe, is the ultimate result. This is also one of the few books relatively well-adapted on the screen.

A classic Stephen King novel! This is a great read that takes you inside the mind of an incredibly gifted child and inside the scary world of what our government would do to control her.
