Maybe it’s because I was already having a great day but Judy Blume’s announcement today (via People Magazine, of all places) of her new novel’s release date almost made me happy cry. The work will be her first adult book since my beloved Summer Sisters and centres around a series of plane crashes that Blume remembers from her childhood in New Jersey.

The book, titled In the Unlikely Event, is due out in June from Alfred A. Knopf. Listen guys, we talk about Serious Works of Literature here at Red Brick Reads all the time but I’m not in a position to tell you whether or not Blume should be included in that cannon. I can tell you though, that she wrote some of the most important books of my life.
