According to publisher Alfred A. Knopf, Judy Blume will be releasing a new adult novel next summer. The novel doesn’t have a title yet but the editor, Carole Baron told The New York Times that the work is “pure Judy Blume.”
Barone went on to say,
“Judy Blume, writing about family and about friendships, about love, about betrayal. It’s quintessential Judy.”
This book release from Blume will be her first since “Summer Sisters” which was published in 1998 and went on to hit No. 1 on USA TODAY’S Best-Selling Books List the next year.
Blume is best known for her books for children and young adults, including the Fudge series; Tiger Eyes, and Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret.
