Stephen King’s Firestarter. Yes, they made that crappy, alternate universe-y TV miniseries on Sci-Fi, but that’s not what I’m talking about. I want another book, man. For those who haven’t read it, the story’s about a pyrokinetic girl named Charlie and her telepathic father. They are on the run from an organization (the Shop) who wants to use Charlie as a weapon.
The Shop captures both of them eventually, but near the end, Charlie escapes by blowing half of their HQ to hell. Her father dies in the process. The last page shows her walking into some magazine’s office, ready to tell her story to the world.
And that’s it. But the Shop’s not completely gone after all that, just under new management. If they were, I wouldn’t think about having a sequel, but the way it ends, eh…you’d think they’d try again, or something.
