Hufflepuff Banner


So I'm editing Whatever, my very first novel, an angsty teen romance (YES AND THERE IS NOT A SINGLE LLAMA INVOLVED, I KNOW, IT'S WEIRD), and sometimes it's glaringly apparent that it took place in the 90's as opposed to present day (IE: "He had all the episodes on tape" instead of "He had the DVD box set").

Should I keep the novel set in the 90's, making it one of those clever "back in the day" things? Or should I try to update it for the kids today?

Poll #1167830 Time Period?

When should "Whatever" take place?

The 90's
The present
