Bestselling American author Judy Blume will publish her first novel for adults since 1998 next year, according to a New York Times report.
The book, which has yet to be titled, was described by Blume editor Carole Baron as "pure Judy Blume, writing about family and about friendships, about love, about betrayal. It's quintessential Judy."
The author's last novel for adults was Summer Sisters, published 16 years ago. Blume, 76, is well-known for such classic young adult books as Are You There God? It's Me, Margaret. and Tales of a Fourth Grade Nothing.
In 2012, she revealed she had been diagnosed with breast cancer and blogged about her treatment.
