Before Carrie Bradshaw hit the big time in the City she was a regular girl growing up in the suburbs of Connecticut How did she turn into one of the most read social observers of our generationThe Carrie Diaries opens up in Carrie's senior year of high school She and her best friends Walt Lali Maggie and the Mouse are inseparable amid the sea of Jens Jocks and Jets And t Look The Carrie Diaries is never going to win any literary awards for being a valuable exploration of teen culture but it was a fun book And I enjoyed reading it for it s entertainment value I ve never seen one episode of Sex and the City And I have only seen one or two of The Carrie Diaries but it didn t really matter This stands alone without those other influences It basically follows Carrie Bradshaw a school senior who s dealing with typical teenage drama boyfriends school prom mean friends dysfunctional families and the looming uncertain future When she starts school a blast from the past in the form of Sebastian Kydd the HOTTEST boy in senior year turns up to ruin her life and that s basically the story One thing I think really stood out is that even though the drama was ridiculous and cliche the dynamics and the aesthetic of the school and how the people and the groups interacted felt realistic I liked that it transcended typical teenage highschool stereotypes generally portrayed within books such as these and insisted upon the integrity and value of each person it did not victimise or vilify one group or cliue but rather highlighted the hypocrisy and flaws of each I liked that the faults of the protagonist and her friends were pointed out alongside those of the popular girls I often find it disappointing how contemporary books dehumanise and vilify pretty girls generally because they are Actually that same concept was analysed and critiued in The Carrie Diaries and for that I m appreciativeThe book had a uniue voice and well rounded host of characters which I felt really fleshed it out and made it than just a contemporary high school romance Carrie s voice was domineering but she was not flawless I liked that she was challenged by both friend and foe for her behaviours and that she was not presented as being ultimately errorless It was really refreshing especially in this genre which I think typically has bland protagonists who possess little or no faults The plot was fast moving and it was easy reading but not absorbing The problems of the characters were really really trivial The characters issues were very white fairly wealthy teenage which was fine but not particularly engaging It did deal with the topics it tackled well though I felt it left the lgbt storyline hanging a bit which was disappointing I would have liked to see it go alot places But other stories including feminism the repression of female sexuality and slut shaming and the challenge between femininity and agency were well written It was clear Candace Bushell places a great importance on writing gender politics and explorations and I suppose it is what she did best here It s a shame the writing is basic and bland because if it d been a bit exciting maybe a little rich this book would have been better I also which the characters had been fleshed out alot especially some of the central supporting characters view spoiler ALSO On a side note I was so happy Sebastian didn t end up with Carrie and he wasn t glorified because he was so shitty and I was so scared he d get forgiven and have a cute romance w her and I was like NO hide spoiler

    Look The Carrie Diaries is never going to win any literary awards for being a valuable exploration of teen culture but it was a fun book And I enjoyed reading it for it's entertainment value I've never seen one episode of Sex and the City And I have only seen one or two of The Carrie Diaries but it didn't really matter This stands alone without those other influences It basically follows Carrie Bradshaw a school senior who's dealing with
