How fitting that the week I post a review of the bestselling nonfiction novel Unbroken, there’s new about the book!
According to Entertainment Weekly, Unbroken‘s bestselling author Laura Hillenbrand has written a young adult version of the book. This adds to the publicity Hillenbrand and Unbroken are already receiving this year, thanks to the Angelina Jolie-directed, Coen brothers-written film version, set to be released on Christmas Day 2014.
In a statement, Hillenbrand explained, “At the urging of librarians, teachers, and parents, I’ve created this edition specifically for younger readers. I’m delighted to bring Louie’s inspiring, exhilarating story to a new generation.”
The YA nonfiction novel is due to be released on Veterans Day, November 11, 2014.
