From PopEater: Old Carrie Bradshaw Meets New in ‘The Carrie Diaries’

Have you ever watched ‘Sex and the City’ and thought about how you and Carrie Bradshaw would totally have been BFF if only you had met in high school? Well, now you can meet the 17-year-old Carrie in Candace Bushnell’s new young adult novel, ‘The Carrie Diaries.’ But this Carrie is a little different from the one we fell in love with on TV and the big screen. Bushnell doesn’t bother sticking to some plot points from the television show — a point that is obvious only to the nit-pickiest ‘SATC’ fans. Like your friends here at PopEater.

In ‘The Carrie Diaries,’ Carrie is a virgin until her senior year of high school. But recall that the TV Carrie once told Charlotte that she lost her virginity in the eleventh grade in Seth Bateman’s smelly rec room on the ping pong table. (Editor’s note: Oh, the glamor of high school!)

Teenage Carrie is quite the gourmand, spending a whole day making coq au vin for friends. “I’ve recently discovered that cooking is a great way to distract yourself from your problems while providing a sense of accomplishment,” young Carrie explains.
