Where do you go when nowhere is safe?
Sixteen years after a deadly virus wiped out most of Earth’s population, the world is a perilous place. Eighteen-year-old Eve has never been beyond the heavily guarded perimeter of her school, where she and two hundred other orphaned girls have been promised a future as the teachers and artists of the New America. But the night before graduation, Eve learns the shocking truth about her school’s real purpose—and the horrifying fate that awaits her.
Fleeing the only home she’s ever known, Eve sets off on a long, treacherous journey, searching for a place she can survive. Along the way she encounters Arden, her former rival from school, and Caleb, a rough, rebellious boy living in the wild. Separated from men her whole life, Eve has been taught to fear them, but Caleb slowly wins her trust . . . and her heart. He promises to protect her, but when soldiers begin hunting them, Eve must choose between true love and her life.
In this epic new series, Anna Carey imagines a future that is both beautiful and terrifying. Readers will revel in Eve’s timeless story of forbidden love and extraordinary adventure.

After reading The Bean Trees I immediately ran out and purchased , and . But apparently my Kingsolver phase was short lived, as my interest fleeted toward dark poetry and the teen angst of J.D. Salinger during those early high school years.
So these three Kingsolver novels now remain the oldest unread books collecting dust in my bedroom. I've heard great things about all of these works, specifically The Poisonwood Bible. Every year I say this will be the year I reinvigorate my Kingsolver passion, but then new books are added to my collection, and these three once again take a back seat. Instead, they sit as a constant reminder of those early years of high school and the passing whims of a teenage girl.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, "One Fifth Avenue" will be adapted by Gossip Girl producer Josh Safran for ABC. Grey's Anatomy's Mark Gordon will produce the series titled "One Fifth."
The project is being described as Sex and the City meets The Good Wife and follows columnist Cassie Bingham as she moves into her apartment located at, you guessed it, One Fifth Avenue, following a separation from her husband.
I attempted to read "One Fifth Avenue" when it was first released in 2008, but after a few chapters I put it down. It still sits, albeit a bit dusty, on my book shelf. I don't remember why I didn't finish the book (it is very rare I stop reading a novel mid-way through) but I guess I will give it another go.
This is the second Bushnell book that has received small-screen chatter. Her prequel to "Sex and the City," . While Bushnell's Sex and the City series was a rampant success, her latest book-to-TV endeavors, Lipstick Jungle, lasted just two seasons.
Have you read One Fifth Avenue? Does it stand a better chance of being Sex and the City or Lipstick Jungle?
