Dan Brown, author of 2003 blockbuster The Da Vinci Codewhich has sold 82 million copies since its publication, is now adapting the book for a YA audience. While the plot and the book’s original characters will remain intact, this YA version will be abridged in length.

“My parents were educators, and so it’s no surprise that I have a fascination with history and research,” Brown said in a release. “In fact, if I weren’t an author, I’m sure I would be a teacher myself. It is my sincere hope that this adaptation of The Da Vinci Code sparks in young adults the same thrill of discovery that I feel while exploring hidden history and the mysteries of the world we live in.”

The Da Vinci Code (Young Adult Adaptation) will be released Sept. 13 by Delacorte Press, an imprint of Random House Children’s Books.
