New Moon

Twilight Series - Book 2

Bella Swan is young woman who is about to celebrate her 18th birthday. As the day gets closer Bella slowly starts to get depressed as it begins to sink in that her boyfriend, Edward will always be 17 and she is continuing to get older. Edward is a vampire who was turned when he was 17. As she celebrates her birthday with the Cullen’s an accident occurs and forces Edward to realize that Bella is not safe with him and his family.

 Edward decides to pull away from Bella and leave the area. Little does he realize the dangers that she will face and try to overcome without him around. When Edward first leaves Bella she quickly sinks into despair with no relief until finally she decides to go through the motions of living so that her father does not send her away from where she was close to Edward. Bella finds a link to Edward when she is in danger and so begins the life of a dare-devil and starts to hang around with Jacob, an old family friend, as he coaxes her back into living. As danger sets in Bella learns some new truths about her best friend and realizes that she can not live without Edward and must try to find a way to get him back.
 
New Moon is the second in a new series by Stephanie Meyer. I sped through this book and after the dark despair of Bella begins to lift I really enjoyed this book. The author is able to portray believable characters and expand on Jacob’s role in the book; I definitely look forward to seeing more from these characters. I found this series to be entertaining for both adults and younger readers. I recommend this book for anyone looking for an interesting return to the teenage tribulations and young love with a twist.
