"Twilight" fans will find a new story when they purchase the 10th anniversary edition of Stephenie Meyer's story -- but it doesn't star Bella and Edward.
Instead, Meyers penned a new tale that retells "Twilight" from a gender-swapped point of view, with a boy named Beau subbing in for Bella, and a girl vampire called Edythe replacing Edward. It's the same story, but now, Beau must decide if he's #TeamEdythe or #TeamJulie (yup, werewolf Jacob is gender-swapped, too) in "Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined."
In an interview with "Good Morning America," Meyer explained that for the book's 10th anniversary, she "wanted to do something fun" for fans. While her publisher suggested writing a new forward, Meyer said she decided to do "something more interesting," and took a cue from Bella herself, who Meyer said was unfairly characterized as a "damsel in distress."

10 years have gone by since Stephanie Meyer gave us the gift of Twilight, and to celebrate the anniversary the famous author has given Twihards a real treat—a new Twilight novel! But there's a catch. It's not another Bella-Edward love story; instead it's a love story that follows two new lovers, Beau and Edythe. The special edition is completely gender-swapped and now follows Beau Swan's move to Forks where the new character meets Edythe Cullen, who, of course, is still a vampire. The new work is titled Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. Meyer appeared on Good Morning America Tuesday morning to talk all about her surprise release and explained why she gave fans this »
It’s been a whole decade since “Twilight” burst onto the scene and kicked off a Ya renaissance. Publisher Little, Brown couldn’t let that milestone pass without celebration. So it makes sense they’re releasing a Special Edition for fans to collect. What doesn’t make sense? A brand-new 400 page story called “Life and Death” that is literally — Literally — just a gender swap of the main characters. Did I trip and fall into The Onion universe? Stephanie Meyer announced the new content today on Good Morning America. Bella now becomes Beau, Edward becomes Edythe, and Jacob becomes Julie. This raises an interesting question to me. When Edward breaks into her house to watch Bella sleep, it’s protective. When he disables her truck so she can’t see her friends, it’s sweet. Actually those are both huge red flags of abuse, but the narrative paints them as positives. »

"Twilight" author Stephenie Meyer is switching things around on the tenth anniversary of the "Twilight" franchise.
"Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined" is a new 442-page novel now available for purchase. The story takes the original "Twilight" and gives it a gender swap. Bella Swan is now a man named Beau, Edward Cullen is a woman named Edythe, and Jacob Black is a female werewolf named Julie.
Speaking with "Good Morning America" this morning, Meyer revealed the project was prompted by her desire to prove that Bella isn't a damsel in distress: "Its always bothered me a little bit because anyone surrounded by superheroes is going to be... in distress. We don't have the powers. I thought, 'What if we switched it around a bit and see how a boy does,' and, you know, it's about the same."
Meyer adds at this point she can't envision a big screen »

Surprise! Twilight is still a thing: Ten years after Edward Cullen and Bella Swan made vampires virtually inescapable, Stephenie Meyer is back to turn your tweens once again. In celebration of the first book's anniversary, Meyer has rewritten Twilight with the genders of the saga's star-crossed lovers reversed. Meet Beau and Edythe, main characters of the newly feminist reading of the series now dubbed Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined, out today. In this version, Bella is Beau, a teen boy who moves to Forks, Washington, and finds himself enamored with the vampire Edythe, the female version of Edward. Meyer explained on Good Morning America that the idea behind the new 442-page book was to put to rest repeated criticism of the original series that it reduced Bella to a "damsel in distress" trope.In making Bella a man in the new book, Meyer says that character now becomes a more »

It has been ten years since "Twilight" hit store shelves, and seven years since the first movie in the franchise landed in cinemas. Both the book and film franchise were mega sensations, but after 2012's "The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn — Part 2" I hoped I could stop writing about it forever. I guess not, as Meyer has found a way to milk her fans for more "Twilight" money. The author has revealed that she's penned a new 10th anniversary edition of "Twilight," that tells the same romantic story you know, but with gender-swapped leads. "Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined" introduces readers to Beau (short for Beaufort, previously known as Bella Swan) and Edythe (who broods instead of Edward Cullen). Speaking on "Good Morning America," Meyer says that Beau is "more Ocd" than Bella, and if you think rewriting the story was hard, guess again. The author says it was “fun, but also really fast and. »

It's too melodramatic to say "Dancing With the Stars" saved Alek Skarlatos life, or to say that, if not for DWTS, the Paris train hero would've saved lives yesterday at Umpqua Community College in Oregon. But in another one of life's odd twists of fate, the 22-year-old Army National Guard Specialist who made headlines when he and friends thwarted a possible terrorist attack in Paris was formerly a student at Ucc and planned to return. In fact, he told "Good Morning America" he would've been at the school the day of the shooting if ABC hadn't called to ask him to join the current season of "Dancing With the Stars."
Alek was with Gma in Roseburg, which he has called "home" for the past six years, to discuss the October 1 tragedy. "It's just absolutely insane, to be in a situation like this, especially in my town Roseburg," Alek said. Six weeks ago, »
