Candace Bushnell created Sex and the City's Carrie Bradshaw. Now she lets teen readers--and adult fans--in on how it all started.
In Summer and the City, second in the Carrie Diaries series, small-town Connecticut girl Carrie Bradshaw arrives in Manhattan. She loves everything about the Big Apple in the 1980s--the club culture, the guys, the crazy fashions, her first real writing class, and most of all, her new friends Samantha Jones and Miranda Hobbes.
Anyone with a dream, or anyone who has wanted to create a fabulous new life, will want to follow Carrie's adventures in glam, gritty New York City. AnnaSophia Robb stars as sixteen-year-old Carrie in the CW adaptation of the Carrie Diaries series.
Praise For Carrie Diaries - Summer and the City…
“If ever a book resounded with positive messages for young people, it’s this one.”
“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. ”
“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.”
“While this book clearly has a built-in audience of adult readers and older teens who are fans of the show and Bushnell’s adult books, there’s also something here for anyone who has ever wished to build a fabulous new life and, especially, for aspiring writers.”
