Twilight, written by Stephanie Meyers, who also wrote The Host, has been a major seller in bookstores across America, and continues to make an international splash.
The plot line focuses around a budding romance between seventeen year old Bella, and the dashing, mysterious Edward Cullen. Bella moves from Phoenix, Arizona, to Forks, Washington, "The rainiest place in the continental U.S.". It's here, in a town of fewer than 3, 200 people, that Bella meets the Cullen clan, and almost immediately falls in love with Edward. To bad the whole lot of them are vampires.
They're good vampires, naturally, or else they already tense relationship between our heroic pair would never work out. Not only are there problems for the pair at school, where no one really understands why they've been drawn to each other, but a nomadic vampire named James wants Bella's blood almost as much as Edward does. Uhoh.
What most people don't seem to realize about the book, boys in general is that it is not entirely a romance. There's plenty of action in it to keep even the most flitting person satisfied.
Twilight can be found at almost any bookstore for about twenty dollars, from Little Brown and Company, and it's worth the investment. It's not nessecarily a quick read, but it's most definitely page turner, and you won't want to put it down.
