Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

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.

Review:

"This polished prequel to Sex and the City reveals the ample drama that filled Carrie Bradshaw's life before her move to Manhattan. With wit and insight, Carrie chronicles her emotionally charged senior year at a small Connecticut high school. While her friends' lives seem to be falling into place — especially on the dating and sex fronts — Carrie has just been rejected by a summer writing seminar in New York City, and laments, 'I have nothing figured out at all.' She falls hard for a slick underachiever who eventually leaves her for one of her best friends, while her widower father grapples with single parenthood, made tougher by Carrie's rebellious youngest sister's antics. Readers should be amused by some of the period details (Carrie's 18-year-old friends can drink legally), though they don't weigh heavily on the story, making the early 1980s setting feel almost incidental. Similarly, there's little that shouts, 'This is the Carrie Bradshaw you know and love,' as opposed to any other thoughtful teenager slowly coming into her own. But readers should enjoy witnessing Carrie's burgeoning independence and confidence as a writer. Ages 14 — up. Here's the latest in board books for littlest readers."
