THE CARRIE DIARIES: SUMMER IN THE CITY (2011)

CANDACE BUSHNELL


“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

“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.” – School Library Journal

“‘Summer and the City’ is Grade-A chick lit from one of its masters.” – Los Angeles Times

“An enjoyable romp of a read.” – Entertainment Weekly
