New Moon by Stephenie Meyer
New Moon picks up right where Twilight left off. Bella and Edward are still happily together when Bella’s eighteenth birthday comes up. When Bella accidentally gives herself a paper cut at the party Edward’s family throws for her, she sets into motion a chain of events that rapidly changes her life. Soon after her birthday, Edward tells Bella that he doesn’t love her anymore and his family is moving across the country. Tired of life without him, Bella takes to dangerous stunts so she can imagine his voice berating her. One day, word of one of her stunts reaches Edward and he, thinking her dead, goes on a suicide mission. Bella reaches him before he completes his mission and he admits that he always loved her. He and his family move back to Forks and he and Bella happily reunite. This second book in the Twilight series was just as compelling as the first. -Cassie P.
