This story returns to Forks to talk about the still-tortured romance of characters now called Beau and Edythe. Meyer said she wrote this 400 page story in part to combat criticism that Bella was too much of a damsel in distress. 鈥淚t鈥檚 just a love story and it doesn鈥檛 matter who鈥檚 the boy and who鈥檚 the girl,鈥 she says, 鈥 It still works out.鈥 Don鈥檛 get excited for another saga, unfortunately.聽鈥淚 think this is just one version with Beau,鈥 Stephenie said. So enjoy this one-off book聽of the Beau and Edythe love story.


On its decade anniversary it鈥檚 a good time to reflect on Twilight. Whether you love it or you hate it you can鈥檛 deny the kind of impact it鈥檚 had on YA lit. This book not only launched the new genre of 鈥渢een paranormal romance,鈥 it also聽further showed the impact of聽YA genre as a whole. Over 100 million copies of the Twilight series have sold world wide, so we can only imagine how many copies聽Life and Death聽are going to be read.

Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined聽hits bookstores today, so go and get it!
