I'm not gonna lie - I LOVED this book!

Of course I also loved the HBO series "Sex and the City" (I own all 6.5 seasons of the show), both film versions, as well subsequent companion "Sex and the City" books. Carrie Bradshaw is one of my all-time favorite literary and television characters, fashion icons, and "every" woman.

This novel is actually a prequel to "Sex and the City", and introduces us to Carrie as she begins her senior year of high school. We see Carrie as she struggles to find her writing voice, gently experiments with fashion, and questions her own place in the small town where she has grown up. Friends, dating, family drama, peer pressure, you name it - Carrie experiences it all (and with her usual candor, optimism, and sensitivity).

A fabulous coming-of-age story about a girl on the brink of becoming a woman, and doing it on her own terms.

Although it is marked as YA Fiction, this book contains strong language, sexual references, and drug/alcohol use.
