by Stephanie Meyer

Although this is a young adult novel, it has become rather popular in many different age groups, so I thought I would give it a try. I am always on the lookout for a good vampire book.

Bella moves to Fork to stay with her Dad, Charlie, so that she can have a more stable life. Her mom is dating a baseball player named Phil and his touring schedule takes them all over the country, so it is more sensible for Bella to stay with her dad. She experiences the typical "new kid in town" syndrome where she feels out of place and like an outsider. Although she develops a few new friendships and couple male admirers, she becomes intrigued by the Cullens family, especially the youngest boy Edward who, at first, acts very strange toward her.

She comes to discover that Edward, and indeed all of the Cullen's, are vampires. Although Bella and Edward fall in love and desperately want to be together, it seems as though a relationship between a human and a vampire is too difficult to exist. Yet, the attraction and passion between them is too intense and they go through many terrifying experiences to be together.

It was a light read, fun and fantastic. I cannot wait to read the next book "New Moon"!
