In this brilliant new novel--her first for adults in fifteen years--legendary author Judy Blume takes us back to the 1950s and introduces us to the town of Elizabeth, New Jersey, where she herself grew up. Following three generations of families, friends, and strangers in the town, we watch her newest cast of characters grapple with first love, estranged parents, difficult friendships, familial obligations, divorce, career ambitions, a grandparent's love, a widower's hope, and everything in between. Their warm and resonant stories are set against the backdrop of a real-life tragedy that struck in the early 1950s: a series of three airplanes fell from the sky over a three-month period, leaving the community reeling. Gripping, authentic, and unforgettable, In the Unlikely Event is Blume's most ambitious and accomplished work yet, with all the hallmarks of this beloved author's unparalleled storytelling.
