Candace Bushnell to Write Two More YA Novels

HarperCollins recently announced a new two-book deal with Sex and the City creator Candace Bushnell. Few details about the new books are available, but in a press release HarperCollins says the novels will be written for a young adult audience.

Bushnell’s first YA novel, The Carrie Diaries, was released in 2010 and it debuted at number 1 on the New York Times bestseller list. The book introduced a teenage Carrie Bradshaw navigating her senior year of high school during the 1980s. The sequel, Summer and the City, will be out April 26th. It’s about Carrie’s first summer in New York City, and explains how she first meets Charlotte, Miranda, and Samantha.

Ann-Janine Murtagh, Publisher at HarperCollins Children’s Books UK, commented on the deal:

“We’re thrilled to have acquired a further two books by Candace Bushnell with our US colleagues. The young Carrie Bradshaw has endeared herself to readers everywhere and we can’t wait to read more of her new adventures as she grows up with her audience. We look forward to some exceptionally exciting publishing.”

The above quote makes it sound like the new books will feature Carrie Bradshaw, but according to Entertainment Weekly, that’s undecided. Bushnell tells EW that “Working on The Carrie Diaries and Summer and the City was an exciting and rewarding experience. I’m looking forward to writing more novels for young adults.”

What do you think about this news? Are you excited to read more from Candace Bushnell?
