Summer is a magical time in New York City and Carrie is in love with all of it - the crazy characters in her neighborhood, 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 realizes that making it in New York is much more complicated than she ever imagined.
With her signature wit and sparkling humor, Candace Bushnell reveals the irresistible story of how Carrie met Samantha and Miranda, and what turned a small-town girl into one of New York City's most unforgettable icons, Carrie Bradshaw.

How Carrie Bradshaw met New York
This was a fun story. I listened to the first book and just had to find out more. The characters were good and the situations interesting. If you really want to know how Carrie Bradshaw got to New York this is a cool way to find out. Samantha was a hoot and I loved Miranda.
I didn't like that the character Charlotte took too long to come in the picture. This could also be a way to lead into another book though. Keep you hanging right?
There were a few things that were a bit unrealistic like Carrie's love interest. This was just a little far fetched, I was waiting for her to ditch him or him her. The idea that she was seeing someone that was so much older than her and he not know how young she was just seemed dumb. But...it didn't prevent me from listening.
The teacher was a creep, I didn't think this story line was important at all.
All in all this was great. I loved the television series, so it was wonderful to connect with the characters again.
