Teen Sex In The City?

NEW YORK (AP) — Meet Carrie Bradshaw, in her teenage years.

"Sex and the City" author Candace Bushnell is writing a pair of teen novels, "The Carrie Diaries," that "takes readers back to Carrie Bradshaw's formative years in high school, giving an inside look at Carrie's friendships, romances and how she realized her dream of becoming a writer," HarperCollins announced Wednesday.

The first book will come out in 2010. Bushnell, in a statement issued by her publisher, said, "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."

Interesting...I wonder if it will be geared towards teenage girls? Most likely this is an effort to capture the market of crazed teen fans of Gossip Girl and the new (blasphemous) 90210. I foresee this quickly being followed by television and movie deals. Can we envision Blake Livley as a young Carrie Bradshaw? Yep! Ka-Ching!
