Abstinence in the City?

Sex and the City fans are going back to high school!

Candace Bushnell, the author of the column that became the hit series and movie, is writing a teen novel about Carrie Bradshaw's adolescence, HarperCollins announced Wednesday.

"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 for global publication in fall 2010. "We are incredibly thrilled," said Alessandra Balzer of HarperCollins' Balzer & Bray imprint. "Teenagers are rabid fans of the Sex and the City book and show. I can't wait to see what happens when Candace turns her sharp eye for social commentary to the other competitive jungle that is high school."
