The Lovereading4Kids comment

This terrific teen prequel to ‘Sex and the City’ is a sexy, funny, coming-of-age and totally engaging look at how Carrie became THE Carrie Bradshaw.

She was just a regular girl growing up in Connecticut. We meet her here in her senior year of high school. She and her best friends are inseparable and then Sebastian Kydd comes into the picture. Sebastian is a bad boy – older, intriguing and unpredictable. Carrie falls into the relationship until a friend’s betrayal makes her question everything.

With an unforgettable cast of characters, The Carrie Diaries is the story of how a regular girl learns to think for herself and evolves into a sharp, insightful writer. Readers will learn about her family background, how she found her writing voice, and the indelible impression her early friendships and relationships left on her. Through adventures both audacious and poignant, we'll see what brings Carrie to her beloved New York City, where her new life begins.

It gives me a chance to read types of books that I would not normally try, and it motivates me to read every night to finish it!

I love Lovereading because I often never know what to read and this helps you find a good book. I have recommended this to many people.

We love Lovereading as my 5 year old loves to read new books before anyone else has a chance, she says it makes reading exciting!

I am so pleased to have signed my kids up as they are reading a much wider range of books and even choosing books out of their comfort zone.
