This is Carrie Bradshaw pre Sex and the City. Living in Castlebury, Carrie has ambition - she always knew she wanted more. Yet, before reaching her goal of become a famous author, she has to navigate her way through senior year. With people haters like Donna LaDonna and Cynthia Viande around, surviving high school seems tough, until Sebastian Kydd came into the picture. Life becomes bearable, yet a best friend seemed to be jealous, and a betrayal is about to surface.
Overall, the novel is fast and light, with a storyline which eventually leads to Carrie arriving in New York. Interesting plot line with betrayals and romance and strong friendships keeps reeling you in. In Carrie's perspective, the novel is in a witty, humorous insight of the main character, sometimes dropping a few lines of wisdom. It doesn't hurt that Carries is so lovable, along with her loyal friends and nutty family. Looking past the sex talks, The Carrie Diaries is a piece to love. You'll get hooked watching Carrie developing into a woman while dealing with her family and her own emotions.
The cover is simple and pretty. I loved it at first sight!
