They say a lot can happen in a summer.
It’s the first day of senior year, and as far as I can tell, I’m exactly the same as I was last year.
And so is my best friend, Lali.
“Don’t forget, Bradley, we have to get boyfriends this year,” she says, starting the engine of the red pickup truck she inherited from one of her older brothers.
The Carrie Diaries is the coming-of-age story of one of the most iconic characters of our generation.
Before Sex and the City, Carrie Bradshaw was a small-town girl who knew she wanted more. She’s ready for real life to start, but first she must navigate her senior year of high school. Up until now, Carrie and her friends have been inseparable. Then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture, and a friend’s betrayal makes her question everything.
With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Readers will learn about her family background, how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we’ll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins.

E’ un libro assolutamente divertente. Si legge con piacere e personalmente, da fan di Sex and the City, mi ha fatto piacere scoprire com’era Carrie prima di andare a New York.
Mi piace il modo in cui certi personaggi sono stati caratterizzati e il fatto che il libro, probabilmente perchè concepito per un pubblico di “giovani adulti”, mantenga sempre una leggerezza e un’allegria costante in tutto il romanzo. E’ stato come un piacevole salto nel passato.
