In the Unlikely Event

By Judy Blume

In Blume's first adult novel since the classic Summer Sisters, main character Miri Ammerman returns to her New Jersey hometown in 1987 to reflect on the best and worst of times in her life — the early 1950s. Miri recalls the exciting details of her youth — Elizabeth Taylor's style, Nat King Cole's music, and the promise of young love — marred by strange events: a succession of airplanes falling from the sky into her community during the early days of air travel (based on actual events in Blume's life).
