Alternative Titles to Novels

By Claire DaQuino

Sometimes novels don’t live up to their titles… so here are some alternative ones to describe the books a little better.

Catcher in the Rye… more like A Long, Disappointing Downward Spiral

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland… more like Y’all Should Have Paid Attention in D.A.R.E.

The Odyssey… more like The Odyssey and on and on and on and on-yssey

Romeo and Juliet… more like Two People who would Never have Survived Quarantine

Great Expectations… more like Great Disappointment

11 Birthdays… more like A Better Version of Groundhog’s Day
Ender’s Game… more like How to Traumatize a Six-Year-Old
