Praise For Carrie Diaries - Summer and the City

“If ever a book resounded with positive messages for young people, it’s this one.”
-USA Today

“Fans of the franchise will want to learn more of Carrie’s coming-of-age experiences and will appreciate the sly wit that sometimes shines through-repartee at parties is occasionally priceless; others might enjoy imagining themselves in Carrie’s freewheeling demi-adult world. ”
-Kirkus Reviews

“The 1980s Manhattan setting is vividly realized, while Carrie’s friendships, doubts, joys, and truisms are relatable and revealing for teens and recognizable for adults. Both audiences will flock to this installment, like Carrie to Chanel.”
-ALA Booklist
