1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?I was simply terrified for Bella's mother. After all, Bella had left a message in the house, and now James could have access to it -- and to Bella's phone number.
2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
She knows that they won't let her go to help her mom. She is also afraid that, if they try to fight, they might not win, and she can't cope with the idea of them dying for her.
3. Bella is able to resist Jasper's calming power. Do you think she actually successfully resisted, or that he gave up when she broke contact?
I think he gave up. After all, there is no other evidence of Jasper's talent ever failing.
