NEW YORK (AP) — Father-and-son best-selling authors David Sheff and Nic Sheff are teaming up for a young adult book about drug abuse.

Houghton Mifflin Harcourt announced Friday that the Sheffs' book, currently untitled, will come out in the fall of 2016. David Sheff is known for "Beautiful Boy," a memoir about Nic's addiction to crystal methamphetamine. Nic Sheff wrote about his addiction in his best-selling memoir "Tweak."

According to Houghton Mifflin, the new book will draw upon research into drugs and drug addiction to help teens and tweens make "informed decisions" about drugs.
