This book is directed at young adults, but to me it is really more of an adult book, or the teen needs to be really mature to read this. The story goes back in time to Carrie Bradshaw's roots back in the 70's. I guess her behavior was pretty typical during that era with lots of alcohol, random sex and some drugs. I supposed the sound track of the book is the rock and roll part. The descriptions of Carrie's wardrobe are spectacular. I just thought the story was a little bit drawn out and very introspective. I dunno -- I am a huge fan of Bushnell's writing but never got into the TV show, so maybe this book isn't directed at me.
