Before Carrie Bradshaw hit the big time in the City, she was a regular girl growing up in the suburbs of Connecticut. How did she turn into one of the most-read social observers of our generation?
The Carrie Diaries opens up in Carrie’s senior year of high school. She and her best friends—Walt, Lali, Maggie, and the Mouse—are inseparable, amid the sea of Jens, Jocks and Jets. And then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture. Sebastian is a bad boy—older, intriguing, and unpredictable. Carrie falls into the relationship that she was always supposed to have in high school—until a friend’s betrayal makes her question everything. With her high school days coming to a close, Carrie will realize it’s finally time to go after everything she ever wanted.
Rabid fans of Sex and the City will love seeing Carrie Bradshaw evolve from a regular girl into a sharp, insightful writer. They’ll learn about her family background—how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. We’ll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where the next Carrie Diaries book will take place.
I remember hearing about this awhile back and just recently the cover was all over the internet and magazines. Loved the tv show Sex and the City (still need to read the book-i do have it!) and I always liked to pretend that Sarah Jessica Parker's show from her teen years, Square Pegs was a younger version of Carrie Bradshaw lol! Anyways this sounds great and it sounds like it's the beginning of a series! I really hope it's written in a journal format like the title implies.
