Chris Weitz is getting ready to write YA Trilogy! Will you read it?
According to the announcement from publisher Little, Brown, the literary trilogy-to-be will kick off with "The Young World": a story about the teenage sole survivors who inherit a destroyed and desolate earth, after a cataclysmic event kills off every person on earth not between the ages of 12 and 21. Ill-equipped to restore society to working order, the surviving residents of New York City must try to rebuild their world from the ground up—a tough charge for any decimated population, but especially difficult if you're trying to save your species from annihilation while simultaneously going through puberty. Drama will abound!
The bad news: The very first book won't be out until the painfully far-off year of 2014.
