    Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters—the sexiest book I read in seventh grade—will be a series.

    Judy Blume’s Summer Sisters, a coming-of-age novel about best friends who spend the summers together on Martha’s Vineyard, will be a limited series on Hulu, with Liz Tigelaar, the writer and showrunner of the upcoming Little Fires Everywhere adaptation, as its writer.

    This news is especially exciting for my middle school self, who graduated from Judy Blume’s sexy teen book Forever to Judy Blume’s sexy grown-up book Summer Sisters.

    The Deadline announcement focuses on the female friendship aspect of the novel, which is also great, but I’m going to be honest: I’m in it for the steamy bits.
