The Carrie Diaries is the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation.
Before Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small-town girl who knew she wanted more. She's ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school. Up until now, Carrie and her friends have been inseparable. Then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture, and a friend's betrayal makes her question everything.
With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Readers will learn about her family background, how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we'll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins.

While I was excited to meet "Pre-New York City, 30-Something" Carrie, I was terribly disappointed by Bushnell's pushover and boy-crazy character. The book didn't introduce us to that brave Jane Austin-esque heroine we've all come to know and love but rather- I felt sorry for her, like one would for a tragic female character in a Shakespeare drama (like that nit-wit Desdemona). Don't waste your time. And Ms. Bushnell- please stop promoting smoking in your books!!!! Young girls read these and shouldn't have a false "cool" impression of smoking in 2010!
It is a good book, specially if you want to know how Carrie was before she moved to The City.
If you are a Sex and the City fan I think you will enjoy the book. Kinda reads like a book written for a teenager, but it is nice to hear about Carrie's life before she mooched to New York. I would love to read the next installment if there was one!
