I did it. I read Twilight.
I'm teaching freshmen English this year:21 girls, 3 boys. It seemed like a necessity. :)
It's actually a pretty good book. I would say that I was pleasantly surprised by it. It's full of teenage love and angst and vampires. What's not to love? On the bright side, the vampires are nice - sorta - and the story is quite riveting. It's no classic, but I did enjoy it as a light read.
One thing I really did like was that it was clean. In spite of the girlfriend/boyfriend aspect and the life-threatening nature of vampires, there were no steamy scenes and no swearing. The worst exclamation was, "Holy Crow!"
I obviously can't tell you what happens because I don't do that, but I will definitely agree with Bella. "I'm with the vampires."
