6th grade entry - Eclipse

6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Kylie’s entry. Thanks, Kylie!

Stephanie Meyer
Little, Brown & Co., 629 p.

Bella Swan, is an eighteen year old girl who moves to Forks, Washington, to live with her dad Charlie, the town’s chief of police. One day Bella came home from school to find some personal items including her favorite red shirt missing. She called her boyfriend Edward, who is a vampire, and they discovered that someone or something had been in her room. Even though Edward and Bella’s best friend Jacob, who is a werewolf, are enemies they decide to send for him to see if he can sniff out a scent. Later that week, Bella reads an article about various people being killed and the murders remain unsolved. The story continues to describe the relationship between the three friends as well as the adventures they go through to find the killer.

The main character in this story is Bella Swan an adventurous, sometimes selfish, beautiful girl who finds herself in love with a vampire. Bella has a tendency to get herself into bad situations. She is a lot like her father strong, intelligent, and she always sticks to a decision when she makes it.

I like this book because the author really describes the characters and the places in the book. The details are great because as you read you can paint a picture in your head and actually relate to what’s going on. I also like all of the action and adventure that is in this book. I really enjoy how the author makes the jealousy between Edward and Jacob so real, as well as how Bella chooses to deal with it. I can understand how Bella feels about Edward and Jacob and choosing between your best friend and true love must be very difficult.

I recommend this book for people who enjoy action, adventure and mystery. The book also offers a little bit of teen romance and jealousy. The book is very easy to read and captures your attention from the start. All of these items make this a fantastic book.
