You really shouldn’t do that to people,” I criticized. “It’s hardly fair.”

“Do what?”

”Dazzle them like that – she’s probably hyperventilating in the kitchen right now.”

He seemed confused.

“Oh come on,” I said dubiously. “You have to know the effect you have on people.”

He tilted his head to one side, and his eyes were curious. “I dazzle people?”

”You haven’t noticed? Do you think everybody gets their way so easily?”

He ignored my questions. “Do I dazzle you?”

Frequently.” I admitted.

Isabella Swan moves to Forks, after a summer with her mother and her mother’s new husband. So at the end of the summer, she packs her bags and moves to Forks to live with her father. She begins school, where she meets some friends, but there is one boy in particular who stands out. Edward Cullen. His stunning good looks and way with words can make any girl melt, but he seems to want nothing to do with poor Bella. Not only does he not look like everyone else; there is something…different about Edward Cullen. There is something that no one can see, unless they look deeper than just the outer image. Will the story end in love or heartbreak? Or even a little of both?

A few reasons why I love this book to death are because it is not the typical romance. It does not begin the way normal high school romances do. The way that Stephanie Meyer writes this book is positively amazing. Her words will astound you, and if you do not believe in love, you will after reading Twilight. Her characters will appear in your mind in everyday situations, completely out of the blue. I fell in love with all of her characters; the way they talk and act. It is a magical novel filled with love, hate and high school drama. Overall, it was a brilliant beginning to a series, which I hope never ends.

I give this book five shining stars because I truly enjoyed it, and it is a book I will never forget. I recommend this book for ages 13 and up.
