"Meet Carrie before Sex and the City"
Have you heard of The Carrie Diaries?
This book is one of two prequels to Sex and the City & is written by the ever-so beloved, Candace Bushnell.
It was released on April 27th of this year, but I waited until this past week to read it.
The Carrie Diaries explores Carrie Bradshaw before Manhattan & Manolos.
It tells the story of how she grew up in Castlebury and ended up in New York City.
First of all, I didn't know this book was aimed for girls (hey, or boys) in grades 9-12.
I knew the characters in the book would be high schoolers, but I guess it just never hit me that this is a book directed to a teenage audience.
I don't care, though, because now I know exactly how Carrie ended up in NYC.

The very last line in the book had my mouth gaped open.
...such a great twist on the ending!
Read it, read it, read it!
That's all for now!
