So, just read the book, because it's effing good!
Sneaked into the toilets to read the first chapter on my Kindle (hooray! Kindle!) and I got immediately hooked. Didn't want to go back to work, just wanted to read the rest.
What can I say...it's a high school story, with all the high school drama, very readable, Carrie-in-the-book truly is recognizable as Carrie-in-the-series/films, liked the characters. The story wasn't very 'high literature' of course, but it is so well written, that at no point the story or the characters are flat. Like the hint of feminism in it. The ending was marvelous and left me with goosebumps all over my arms.
Hope Bushnell will write another book starting where she left off with this one, I honestly do.
Carrie, an aspiring writer, is a senior who attends Castlebury High with her best friends: Walt, "The Mouse," Lali, and Maggie. Also in attendance are the two Jens and Donna LaDonna, the popular girls. This year, there's a new guy in town, Sebastian. Everyone who's anyone wants to date Sebastian, but Carrie has a secret, she has met Sebastian before, through her mother. Her mother and his morther went to school together and Carrie met him once at their house. Sebastian recognizes Carrie too, but just can't remember why. It's a race to see who will date Sebastian first, even though everyone thinks Donna LaDonna will win.
Carrie and her friends spend senior year going to parties, crying, laughing, and pretending that college isn't as close as it actually is. The Mouse is the smart one of the bunch who plans on going to Yale, Walt is the guy all girls want to be friends with, Maggie is a drama queen, and Lali is Carrie's oldest and closest friend. Carrie is the oldest of three girls; her mother passed away a few years ago, leaving their father to raise them alone.
Carrie begins to fall for Sebastian shortly after the start of the school year, and he, in return, begins to fall for her. The only problem is, Sebastian is not a one girl kind of guy. Then there's George, Carries new friend from Brown, the college she plans on attending after high school.Read more ›
Carrie hasn't had things easy, but she still has dreams of becoming a writer. She applied to a summer writing program in NYC, but she was rejected. Now she must resign herself to going to Brown and studying science like her father wants. She wishes desperately her mom were still alive to give her advice about what to do. So she keeps going through the motions, hanging out with her friends, chain smoking cigarettes (it was the 1980's after all), and listening to all her friends tell her about their boyfriends, guy friends, and crushes... until Sebastian Kydd arrives.
Carrie's first run-in with Sebastian when they were young was not terribly promising, but he is still as hot as she remembers. At first she thinks he is dating the head cheerleader (and Queen Bee) Donna LaDonna (feel free to gag a little at that name... I did). But soon it becomes clear Sebastian Kydd wants her more. Carrie is thrilled, until Donna LaDonna wages war on her. Carrie keeps trying ot get to the bottom of the LaDonna/Kydd thing, but Sebastian keeps dodging her questions.
Carrie's dad introduces her to a Brown student he knows and encourages her to spend time with him (in a not-so-subtle way of getting her to go to Brown). She likes George, but he just isn't boyfriend material. Still she continues hanging out with him until George finds out about Sebastian.Read more ›
