Fans all over the world have been waiting anxiously to find out the title, story and release date of J.K. Rowling’s new adult book and now we know.

Her new adult book, which will be titled The Casual Vacancy, will be released on September 27th of this year and will be available as a book and e-book.

The synopsis of the book, as said by Little, Brown Book Group is :

When Barry Fairweather dies unexpectedly in his early forties, the little town of Pagford is left in shock.

Pagford is, seemingly, an English idyll, with a cobbled market square and an ancient abbey, but what lies behind the pretty façade is a town at war.

Rich at war with poor, teenagers at war with their parents, wives at war with their husbands, teachers at war with their pupils…Pagford is not what it first seems.

And the empty seat left by Barry on the parish council soon becomes the catalyst for the biggest war the town has yet seen. Who will triumph in an election fraught with passion, duplicity and unexpected revelations?

Sounds like a really interesting story. I’m incredibly excited for the release of this book! Who else is starting a countdown to the release?
