The Twilight Series

Victoria Stuhr '10, Pinole High School in Pinole, California recommends

The Twilight Series by Stephenie Meyer. Boston: Little, Brown, 2005, 2006. This Three volume set includes Twilight, New Moon, and Eclipse

Meyer has written a vampire romance for young adult readers. Victoria tells the review that the first volume in the series is a romance, the story in the second volume is very sad, and the third and final volume is action packed.

For those of you who don't want any of the plot to be given away before you read it, this review gives away some important information about the books—it may be a spoiler.

The Twilight Series is about a teenage girl who moves to a new town with her dad. At her new school she meets a boy who seems a little strange. Nonetheless, or perhaps because of this, they end up falling in love. The girl discovers that he is a vampire. This is not the only suprise for her, because later on she discovers that her best friend is a werewolf. The vampire boyfriend doesn’t want to let the heroine go, but he doesn’t want to turn her into a vampire. The heroine however is willing to make this sacrifice to stay with him. These stories describe the life of vampires, their family arrangements, and their origins. These are fat books, but Victoria has read right through them and is recommending them to her friends.
