Eclipse by Stephenie Meyer
In Eclipse, Bella has to face the fact that the two sides of her world cannot combine. While Edward was away in New Moon, she made friends with Jacob Black. He quickly fell in love with her, while she herself still could never think of anyone but Edward in that way. He made her feel safe and secure, though, so she took the relationship for granted. Edward, however, has a strong aversion to Jacob that goes far beyond jealousy and Jacob feels the same towards him. Neither likes the other to spend time with Bella. But when someone new comes to town and threatens her, everyone is forced to put aside their differences and work together to keep her alive. Eventually Bella realizes that she loves Jacob the same way she loves Edward. In the end, once the danger is averted, she is forced to make a decision that will destroy one relationship forever. I loved Eclipse all the way to the last page and anxiously await the fourth installment in the amazing Twilight series. -Cassie P.
