Before Carrie Bradshaw Became Carrie Bradshaw

Publisher Balzer + Bray--an imprint of HarperCollins--is coming out with a new spin-off of Sex and the City this April, but this time, it's for young adults.

Here's B&N.com's synopsis of Candace Bushnell's new book, The Carrie Diaries:

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.

Thanks to LG for passing along the exciting news! We'll have to keep an eye on this one!


  1. Okay, that totally makes me happy! I will admit that from time to time I am totally in love with the SATC series, and since I love all things young adult--well, you know :)

  2. This makes me ridiculously happy! I do not necessarily quote SATC all the time,but I do feel that there is an episode out there that will help you deal with almost all aspects of your life (at least up until this point for me!)! However, I've always been curious about Carrie's background with her family and this looks like it will help me out! Thanks for the post!
