Twilight (Paperback)

by Stephenie Meyer (Author)
From School Library Journal
Starred Review. Grade
9 Up–Headstrong, sun-loving, 17-year-old Bella declines her mom’s
invitation to move to Florida, and instead reluctantly opts to move to
her dad’s cabin in the dreary, rainy town of Forks, WA. She becomes
intrigued with Edward Cullen, a distant, stylish, and disarmingly
handsome senior, who is also a vampire. When he reveals that his
specific clan hunts wildlife instead of humans, Bella deduces that she
is safe from his blood-sucking instincts and therefore free to fall
hopelessly in love with him. The feeling is mutual, and the resulting
volatile romance smolders as they attempt to hide Edward’s identity
from her family and the rest of the school. Meyer adds an eerie new
twist to the mismatched, star-crossed lovers theme: predator falls for
prey, human falls for vampire. This tension strips away any pretense
readers may have about the everyday teen romance novel, and kissing,
touching, and talking take on an entirely new meaning when one small
mistake could be life-threatening. Bella and Edward’s struggle to make
their relationship work becomes a struggle for survival, especially
when vampires from an outside clan infiltrate the Cullen territory and
head straight for her. As a result, the novel’s danger-factor
skyrockets as the excitement of secret love and hushed affection morphs
into a terrifying race to stay alive. Realistic, subtle, succinct, and
easy to follow, Twilight will have readers dying to sink their teeth into it.–Hillias J. Martin, New York Public Library
