Set during the summer before her freshman year at Brown, Carrie learns to navigate her way through the Big Apple, takes a writing class at The New School, and even pursues a relationship with an older man. Joining her along the way, she meets Samantha Jones, a true Manhattan fashionista who's determined on the path of fame and fortune, and the opinionated feminist Miranda Hobbes who is a freshman at New York University.
