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 by

A quick, enjoyable read. Bushnell nails the 'dramas' and angsts of what it felt like to be a teenager.Younger readers seem to have been a bit down about this novel, and I can only think that they are more assured than some of us were, back in the day.
