This story continues from the first book in the Twiilight series. It was originally published in hardcover in 2006. This title is call New Moon.

I loved this book. The first was a little boring so it was refreshing that this one was bette. I found it hard to put the book down and I would reccomend this to anyone who has read the first book called Twilight.
