Mark your calendars: Judy Blume will publish her first novel for adults since 1998's Summer Sisters next year. 

Blume is the author of such school-library staples as Are You There God? It's Me, MargaretFreckle JuiceSuperfudge; and Tiger Eyes

Her editor at Knopf was stingy with the details, saying only, "It’s pure Judy Blume, writing about family and about friendships, about love, about betrayal. It’s quintessential Judy.” Blume played it equally close-to-the-vest, commenting, “I’m both thrilled and terrified, my usual feelings at this point. I’ll be hiding out this summer revising, my favorite part of the process.”
