Stephenie Meyer gave her fans a somewhat unique gift for "Twilight's" 10th anniversary. On Tuesday she released "Life and Death: Twilight Reimagined." (Video via Summit Entertainment

So what's so reimagined about this new book?

Gender swap! In the new book, Bella is Beau and Edward is Edythe. But don't worry you Twihards, it's still a teen, vampire love story.

Meyer told "Good Morning America" it bothered her that some readers saw Bella as a damsel in distress, so she wanted to switch up the genders.

And that's a fair point, because both Edward and Jacob spend huge parts of each book saving Bella.

But don't get your hopes up for a whole new series or even a movie version of the new book. 

Meyer said on "Good Morning America," "I think that this is just one version with Beau."

Many Twitter users are all about the Twilight revival. But the series will always have its critics.

"Did your Twilight experience turn out to be what you expected," asked Shaun Robinson on Access Hollywood.

"Oh," sighed Robert Pattinson.
