I don't know why it took so long for me to read this book. I mean, for me to pick it up in the first place. Once I started, I zipped through it.
Bella moves to a rainy, dismal town to stay with her Dad when her mom marries a traveling baseball player. At first she hates the town, until she discovers Edward--a strange, alluring boy that she can't stay away from. Turns out Edward is a vampire, but he's a "good vampire" that doesn't drink human blood as much as he may crave it. Much like Angel from Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Edward drinks only animal blood and fights his desire for humans.
Bella and Edward fall in love, but being in love with a vampire has its obstacles.
When I say that I zipped through this book, I meant it. I loved it. I loved the unnatural forbidden relationship, much like Buffy and Angel, I loved Edward and his vampire family. The plot is interesting and thrilling and it's hard to put down the book. I can't wait to get my hands on New Moon--the sequel.
