It was love at first sight. From the moment seventeen-year-old Arnie saw Christine, he knew he would do anything to possess her. Arnie's best friend, Dennis, distrusts her—immediately. Arnie's teen-queen girlfriend, Leigh, fears her the moment she senses her power. Arnie's parents, teachers, and enemies soon learn what happens when you cross her. Christine is no lady. She is Stephen King's ultimate, blackly evil vehicle of terror.
This is the story of a love triangle involving teenage misfit Arnie Cunningham, his new girlfriend, and a haunted 1958 Plymouth Fury. Dubbed Christine by her previous owner, Arnie's first car is jealous, possessive—and deadly.
