Book publishing group HarperCollins announced that Candace Bushnell, the author of Sex and the City, is writing a teen novel about Carrie Bradshaw’s adolescence.
“I’ve always been interested in exploring Carrie’s teenage years,” Bushnell said in a statement. “Carrie in high school did not follow the crowd – she led it. It was there that she began observing and commenting on the social scene.”
The novel, part of a two-book deal, is due in Fall 2010.
