6th graders at WOMS have been invited to post guest entries on my blog for YA books they’ve recently read. This is Nicole’s entry. Thanks, Nicole!
Little, Brown and Company, 563 p.
After moving to little town Forks, Washington, Isabella Swan meets the beautiful and incredible, vampire Edward Cullen. After their troubles with other vampires in the first book Twilight, Bella must now face the fact that she must forget her love for Edward when he and his family go away. After a few months without him, she must go by her father's rules and go out and spend as much time as possible with her friends. One day when Bella was going home from work she finds two old, beat up motorcycles, and she decides to have them fixed by her father's friends son, Jacob Black. Bella discovers that she has a true friendship with Jacob. And while she is doing things risky with him, she will have hallucinations and hear Edward's voice.
After a few more months with spending time with Jacob, she finds out a secret a few days before Edward returns. Now she must choose between her very good friendship with Jacob, or her love for Edward.
The main character is Isabella Swan, and she goes by Bella. She is always thinking of Edward and can't bare to live without him. She moved to Forks, Washington when she was a senior, to live with her father. She has a mother named Renee, and a step father named Phil. She enjoys spending time with Edward's adopted sister Alice Cullen, and loves to cook dinner for her father. She has friends at her school, that don't talk to her much because they don't enjoy her going out with Edward, but she works at one of her friends parents Sport Shop.
I feel sorry for Bella, because she has to decide whether or not if she wants to keep her love for Edward or her friendship with Jacob, and I think she's going through a hard time and it's hard for her to choose, and then she finds out more and more things, and it could really make it hard for her, and on top of that she's worrying about what her friends think of her, when she's not talking to them. And they give her a hard time at school, and at work.
I was very excited that I got to read New Moon, because it has stories in it that make it seem so real, and that the myths could actually be true and on top of that it has action in it, which was very cool. The author describes the story with SO much detail that it feels like I'm along side with it, like it's a movie, and it's so cool that the books actually do become a movie and it's filmed in Forks, Washington and some here in Oregon. Although I've never been to small town Forks, Washington, I felt like I was actually there along side with Bella and all that's happening.
I would definitely recommend New Moon to people who love to read romance, action, myths all together, and with characters that express them selves, and how they're feeling in one chapter. I would not recommend this book to kids younger then 10 years old to read it for there is some bad language and a too hard of grammar for them. Submitted by Nicole M.
