Judy Blume is and always will be a literary genius. Her books ignited my love of reading as a child.
Her book, Summer Sisters has landed for development, a limited drama series from Liz Tigelaar, the writer/showrunner of Little Fires Everywhere. The series is based on the bestseller from Blume.
Summer Sisters is one of the first books that I ever read that taught me about the power of female friendships and the lessons that we can learn from them.
Summer Sisters chronicles the coming-of-age of two best friends and the relationship that defines their lives. Set on Martha’s Vineyard, the story explores the beautiful, intoxicating, and everlasting impact of female friendship… and how it has the power to break your heart.
Writer Liz Tigelaar is adapting the series. She’s long been a fan of Blume’s and Summer Sisters has been a passion project of hers. She wrote Blume a letter asking to adapt the novel.
Are You There God? It’s Me, Margaret, the five-book Fudge series, Forever, Wifey, and In the Unlikely Event are some books that you may recognize from Blume. Her books have sold over 85 million copies world wide.
Have you read Summer Sisters? Are you excited for the adaptation to come to Hulu?
