Goodreads Description: 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.

Review: This book was a flashback to high school! The boy drama, the friend drama, the mean girl drama, this book has it all. I literally felt like i was reliving my senior year of high school all over again, but this time with Carrie Bradshaw as my best friend (I wish).

After watching the Sex and the City TV series and movies, I was extremely excited to see how Candace Bushnell would portray Carrie in her younger years, and she did not disappoint me one bit. I loved this look into Carrie's last year of high school before she goes on to tackle "The City".

The best part of this whole book though.. is the ending! Candace Bushnell leaves the story with Carrie getting in touch with none other than.. well you will just have to read it for yourself to see! But I will tell you this, it is one of the other main characters from Sex and the City. I cannot wait to read Summer and the City and see what adventures await young Carrie as she ventures to NY city for the first time!
