Twilight: New Moon by Stephanie Meyer


Twilight New Moon by Stephanie Meyer is a book written about a vampire, Edward Cullen, and a werewolf, Jacob Black, who both like a human. Bella Swan, the narrator and the main character, lives in Forks, Washington with her father, Charlie Swan. Bella moved from Phoenix, Arizona and is starting to go to school where she meets Edward in Forks. Edward Cullen is a 17 year old vampire that never ages and Bella is a human who is now older than Edward after her 18th birthday. Bella’s birthday party was celebrated at Edward’s house with his family until she gets a paper cut around his vampire family. Jasper, Edward’s brother, tries to drink Bella’s blood but Edward saves her by stopping Jasper.

            A few weeks after Bella’s birthday Edward stops talking to her after the whole Jasper situation ending their relationship telling her ‘’It will be as if I’d never existed’’ 193. Bella thinks that her life is perfect with or without Edward because that’s when she suddenly becomes close with Jacob Black. Jacob Black comes from La Push, Washington and knows Bella and Charlie through their fathers friendship. This friendship between Bella and Jacob ends when he joins a wolf pack with Sam Uley completely changing his physical features. ‘’Jacob you cut your hair off? And got a tattoo?’’ 192, describes how much of a change there is between the old and new Jacob.

          This second heart break causes Bella to question the world. ”I was like a lost moon-my planet destroyed in some cataclysmic, disaster movie scenario of desolation-that continued in a tight little orbit around the empty space left behind, ignoring the laws of gravity”201 explains her view of the world after going through some hard times. This causes Bella to go cliff diving by herself nearly drowning until Jacob saves her. Alice, Edward's vampire sister, can see the future. In the future, Alice sees Bella dead but she doesn't see Jacob saving her. Edward goes crazy and starts to head toward Italy to the Volturi. The Volturi is the largest and most powerful coven of vampires. The Volturi's palace is where Edward can kill himself. Luckily Alice gets to Bella before anything happens to Edward. Now the Volturi knows that a human knows about the vampire kind. This human is Bella, leaving her with the decision of either joining vampires or Edward's death. She thinks that the Volturi is there to harm vampires but they're really there to protect them” The Volturi are not supposed to be the villains, the way they seem to you. They are the foundation of our peace and civilization”352. They are back together feeling like everything is back to normal after bring apart from each other for so long.
