Bushnell Candace

(Marion Ettinger)

HarperCollins has just announced two new YA books from Candace Bushnell, author of Sex and the City. After successfully introducing a teenage Carrie Bradshaw in The Carrie Diaries, Bushnell has a followup on the way called Summer and the City, to be released April 26th. The sequel will tell the story of Carrie’s first summer in Manhattan and how she met her future BFFs, Samantha, Miranda, and Charlotte.

While it’s undecided whether the two announced books will continue the saga of Carrie’s transformation from small-town girl to Cosmo-sipping fashionista, fans of The Carrie Diaries will be excited to know of Bushnell’s plans to write at least two more books for younger readers. “Working on The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City was an exciting and rewarding experience,” Bushnell told EW exclusively. “I’m looking forward to writing more novels for young adults.”

Should Bushnell write more about young Carrie’s exploits? Or is it time she explored a different teen character?
