“The very first book in The Twilight Saga, and the one which the Twilight movie was based upon. If you're thinking about seeing the movie, I definetly recommend reading the book first as many things are different and the book has much more detail and explains things much better. In this novel, Bella moves in with her father, Charlie, and is first introduced to Edward and the Cullens family, whom she quickly discovers are vampires. Even knowing this fact, Bella does not feel scared or threatened around Edward or his family, and Bella and Edward's relationship blossoms. However, a chance encounter with some other vampires (Laurent, James, and Victoria) puts Bella and her family's life in danger. Bella ends up being severely injured at the end of the book, with Edward nobly coming to her rescue.”
