    The "Twilight" Author Has Rewritten The Book To Reverse The Genders

    This is what dreams are made of.

    In honor of the Twilight series' 10th anniversary, author Stephenie Meyer has rewritten Bella and Edward's story in a 442-page new novel called Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined. And she's reversed their genders.

    The character formerly known as Bella Swan will be known as Beaufort (Beau for short), and Edward Cullen has been reimagined as Edythe.

    Many fans were hoping for the anniversary Meyer would release Midnight Sun, the retelling of the Twilight saga through Edward's perspective.

    So why the gender swap? Partly because Meyer doesn't want anyone to see Bella as a damsel in distress anymore. "It's always bothered me a little bit," she said on Good Morning America today.

    But can we hope for another series?

    OK, but what about a movie?

    But we're choosing to KEEP THE DREAM ALIVE.

    Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined is available in bookstores now.
