Twilight by Stephenie Meyer was as good as everyone said until I read it for myself. But it is SO good! I don't want to wreck any of the surprises by telling too much about the story so I will give you the bare bones.
Bella is new in town. She has come to Forks, Washington to stay with her father. She has come from Phoenix where it is always sunny and beautiful. She has a hard time dealing with the small town attitude and the constant rain. One thing that makes it bearable is the presence of Edward Cullen. He is beautiful, mysterious and unusually fixated on Bella.
This book has so many strange and exciting elements I wouldn't even know where to begin. Lets just say that this is a story of falling crazy in love with a bad boy and hoping that you can keep from losing your head.
There is a sequel, New Moon which I am dying to read. And I hear that there are going to be even more! Here's hoping...
