We love almost every update of classic literature that we can get our hands on. She’s The Man? Why didn’t Shakespeare include soccer in Twelfth Night originally? Clueless? Emma would have died for some chic Calvin Klein. A Cinderella Story? Cinderella seemed like a smart chick. If she could have fled her family to go to college, she would have! It’s why we love our contest with Justine Magazine–update a classic story and you could see your tale in print!
There are some updates, however, that haven’t yet been made–for good reason! As much as we love us some good ol’ modernization, these fictional fiction updates are just too much.
