The Carrie Diaries - Candace Bushnell

I read this in two settings whilst on holiday in November last year. A very enjoyable coming of age contemporary YA novel. Initially picked up at the bookshop because I'm a Sex and the City fan. Whilst I wasn't all that impressed with the original book, I still like the TV show, so was curious to know how all the girls met.

The Carrie in this book bares in my mind absolutely no resemblance to the woman she will become, even though, I think that's a good thing because anyone who loves fun YA contemporary reads can pick this story up and enjoy it without knowing anything about who Carrie Bradshaw is. 

She was very likable, and a believable character as a teen in the 80s. The story was pretty good, trials and tribulations of seniors in high school ready to discover more beyond their small home town. Learning who your real friends are, mean girls, parties, classes, looking at prospective colleges and romance and a desire for New York City all make for a fun entertaining story.
