Synopsis

Summer and the City by Candace Bushnell

Meet teenage Carrie Bradshaw as she hits the bright lights, big city of New York for the very first time! Find out how Carrie transforms from country girl to super-cool fashionista in the second explosive CARRIE DIARIES novel from the globally bestselling author of SEX AND THE CITY. Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of it -- the crazy characters in her neighbourhood, the vintage-clothing boutiques, the wild parties and the glamorous man who has swept her off her feet. Best of all, she's finally in a real writing class, taking her first steps toward fulfilling her dream. This sequel to THE CARRIE DIARIES brings surprising revelations as Carrie learns to navigate her way around the Big Apple, going from being a country sparrow -- as Samantha Jones dubs her -- to the person she always wanted to be. But as it becomes increasingly difficult to reconcile her past with her future, Carrie realises that making it in New York is much more complicated than she ever imagined. With her signature wit and sparkling humour, Candace Bushnell reveals the irresistible story of how Carrie met Samantha and Miranda, and what turned a small-town girl into one of the New York City's most unforgettable icons, Carrie Bradshaw.

About the Author

Candace Bushnell

Candace Bushnell is the creator of SEX AND THE CITY and has been described by the EVENING STANDARD as a 'genius'. The OBSERVER compared her to Nancy Mitford and the SUNDAY TELEGRAPH to 'Jane Austen with a Martini.'

Below is a Q&A with this author.

I can’t live without… books.

If I wasn’t a writer… I’d want to be an Olympic Dressage Equestrian.

I feel most comfortable in… my own skin. You take yourself wherever you go.

The book I reread the most is… Custom of the Country by Edith Wharton. The main character, Undine Sprague, is wicked and wonderfully unrepentant.

My favorite vintage piece is… a green fringed Michael Kors dress I bought in the late eighties.

The three words that describe me best are: imagination, passion, determination.

The best thing about New York City is… the people. Everyone has a story.

My mantra is: Never have a mantra. Or a favorite color.

The best decision I’ve ever made… was to believe in myself.

The best part about writing The Carrie Diaries was: Writing The Carrie Diaries! I know I’m lucky to have found work I love to do.

I love that Lovereading handpicks very special debut reads.

Lovereading is not only an amazing site, but it's one of my very favourites. It's like visiting a fascinating bookstore, but better.

I recommend Lovereading because you get honest reviews on a whole range of genres-there's something for everyone. It's the only site I need.

Sian Spinney

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

They are bright, breezy and eager to offer a great book, then genuinely listen/respect the review one writes.

It has opened my eyes to different authors and genres. Just log on and try, you will be surprised and not want for reading material again.

The books for review are always great reads, brilliantly written, and introduces me to a huge variety of, established and new, authors.
