I got an email this morning informing me that Random House/Penguin is planning to publish a young adult "adaptation" of Dan Brown’s The Da Vinci Code this fall. The book will be available on September 8th in the UK and September 13th here in the States. Frankly, I found The Da Vinci Code damn near unreadable—it felt like a boring version of Katherine Neville's The Eight—but Brown's novel has sold approximately one zillion copies, so maybe there is a demand for an abridged, sanitized YA version. Either way, I sincerely hope Random House/Penguin resists the urge to order a teen-friendly adaptation of their other major bestseller.
