Carla Pulaski is a character in the novel Final Destination: Looks Could Kill. She is the mother of Stephanie Pulaski. After Stephanie had awoken from her coma, Carla paid her a visit to see how she was doing and to take her back to her hometown Allentown. Stephanie immediately told her she wasn't going back with her and that her real name was "Sherry" now. Carla told her she had nothing left since Merlot was dead and no one would hire her due to her maimed face. Stephanie simply chucked a bed pan at her mother and shouted for her to leave, which she did shortly afterwards.
