"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"

My Thoughts:
In The Carrie Diaries by Candace Bushnell, We learn about Carrie's past, how her high school experience was, and how her writing career began. I can honestly say I loved this book. Some may find Carrie to be whinny and insecure however for me she was trying to figure out who to become. She involves into the Carrie we all know and love. 

In her high school years she had to deal with popular girl cliques, having her boyfriend stolen from her best friend. Her love for fashion was started at a young age. 

In the end Carrie gets to New York City and we meet a familiar face. 

5/5 stars!!  If you're a fan of Sex and The City you have to read this. I don't recommend this for 17 years and under. 

Hope you enjoyed this review, Ashley
