In Candace Bushnell's new pre-quel to Sex and the City, readers meet 17-year old Carrie Bradshaw, a high school student who's obsessed with cooking coq a vin, is a virgin until senior year of high school, and is the oldest of three—she has two younger sisters! PopEater points out there are some key differences between the book-Carrie and the onscreen-Carrie: i.e. she doesn't cook as an adult, she tells Charlotte she lost her virginity in 11th grade, and the television series features a visit from her high school boyfriend Jeremy (played by David Duchovny)—he never makes an appearance in Bushnell's new book. Differences, shmifferences, we still can't wait to read it! [PopEater]
