On Tuesday, Stephenie Meyer announced that in celebration of the tenth anniversary from her first publication, she has written a new version of the first book “Twilight”, named “Life and death”. In this version she has swapped the gender of the main characters, so Bella is a boy named Beau (Beaufort) and Edward is a girl named Edythe. She claims that the main reason is because she got a lot of hate because Bella seems to dependent on Edward because she is a girl. She says:

โ€œIโ€™ve always maintained that it would have made no difference if the human were male and the vampire female – itโ€™s still the same story. Gender and species aside, Twilight has always been a story about the magic and obsession and frenzy of first love.โ€

She started the announcement with the words “I am sorry” because a lot fans thought she would publish Midnight Sun for the anniversary, the story told in the perspective of Edward, so I don’t think we will see that happening in the next 10 years.

I still don’t know how I feel about this, I think it will be exciting to read the story from a different angle but isn’t this just milking the cow a little too much? Let me know what you think down below!
