Candace Bushnell to Write YA Books About Carrie's Teen Years

Candace Bushnell to Write YA Books About Carrie's Teen Years

Ever wonder about Carrie Bradshaw's teenage years? Well, Sex and the City author Candace Bushnell will fill in all the blanks for us with a pair of young adult novels that will follow Carrie in her "formative high school years." The Huffington Post has more:

Bushnell, in a statement issued by her publisher, said, "Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd — she led it. It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene."

I'll be very interested to find out how Bushnell balances Carrie being the leader of the popular crowd as well as the one "observing and commenting." Also, how long do you think it'll be before these books are adapted for TV (most likely the CW)? By then I will have to stop picturing Sarah Jessica Parker as a teenager in Square Pegs (see above). I think I'd rather see something like that than another Gossip Girl knockoff, but who knows? Maybe these books will be totally fabulous.

I have mixed feelings about this. I guess I would have to read a book to form a fair opinion.

I might be tempted to have a look, but I don't always appreciate, when they stretch the story into something it isn't, and wasn't going to be, just to cash in. :oy:

I read this on Pop. I might. I'm not sure. I looooove the show, but I didn't care much for the book.

This seems like an interesting idea. We don't know much about Carrie's high school years, except that she dated David Duchovny's character and that she lost her virginity in a rec room in 11th grade or something like that. ;) Sorry I'm a diehard SatC fan.

Honestly, after Four Blondes I'm not sure I would ever read Candace Bushnell again.

hmmm - as a DIE HARD fan of the show - i don't know if i'll be into it as much finding out how she was during high school. we all know that she dated a guy for a while - (the david duchovny character) but other than that - we just don't know. i'm sure that i'll read it - but i wonder if they'll try to adapt that to a movie or TV series.

Another Square Pegs would actually be more fun. Would it have Devo on it? ;)
