Lit on Fire is published by YouthPLAYS.

They may have appeared on your high school reading list, or maybe only in your nightmares, but now twelve YouthPLAYS authors are striking a match and burning down the classics...with their pens and computer keyboards. Whether it's the complete works of Jane Austen gone full-on Hollywood, Count Dracula as a cafeteria cook, or Huck Finn running away from his story only to have it catch up with him again--to name just a few--get ready to light up the literary canon with this scorchingly funny new collection.
