1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?
I was scared and wondered what was going to happen next. I was reading so quickly at this point that I just kind of sped on!

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
Hmm, good question. I am not sure if I totally know. I think part of it might be that Alice maybe understands a tiny bit what Bella is doing, or she feels that at least she will know where Bella is when Edward gets there. Or maybe she is in denial and hoping that Bella won't do it. But for sure I think she doesn't want Jasper to over react. Jasper is very protective of Bella at this point, and I gather he is extremely protective of Alice (we see this more in New Moon, when Alice goes to Italy and explains why she didn't tell Jasper). I think part of Alice doens't want Jasper to try to stop Bella?

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?
Hmm another thing I hadn't thought about before. I think that it was half and half. I think that Bella's mind is so strong ( I know Jasper's gift has more to do with physiology than psychology but her mind plays into this) that she is able to counteract some of Jasper's calming effect, and it seems that he doesn't try to push it.

Can NOT be good. Escpecially with Bella's luck.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
Because James told her not to, or her mother would die, and Bella is one to believe whatever you say.

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 she resisted, she is strong ;)

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?
I was thinking that James must have gone there. There isnt any other explination as to why she would have that kind of vision.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
She probably doesnt want them to worry. They would want to come with Bella, and Bella knew that wasnt the best idea. She didnt want to endanger her family.

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 she was actually successful with resisting.

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?
I don't really remember. I don't think my reaction was very strong. James was supposed to be a tracker so I assumed it was pretty easy for him to find Bella's home.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
She feels that doing this alone is her best chance at saving her mother. She knows that if she tells them, they'll never let her go. I don't think she believes they'll just let her mother die, but they would go after James on their own and Bella's afraid James would harm her mother before they could do anything.

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. He could have maintained contact with her forcibly if necessary and he didn't really need the contact anyway, although I think contact made his power stronger.

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?
Sheer terror, and that's no over exaggeration. I felt my heart fall right onto the floor... I was so scared for her and Renee!

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
They would stop her, of course. She felt that this was what she needed to do.

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 don't think he really... gave up. But I think that when Jasper realized that she didn't want him to do what he was doing he stopped... not because he was giving up, but because he understood that she kind of wanted to worry. It was her right to worry. She said stop, so he did.

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?

I almost cried I was freaked out for her...I was so freaked out James was going to kill her mom.

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

I think she knew they would stop her, and she really didn't want to push her luck with James.

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 it was a bit of both, Jasper really didn't want to do anything against her wishes
"Why won't you leave me alone?"
Believe me,I wanted to say. I've tried.
Oh, and also, I'm wretchedly in love with you.

I was freaking out, this is not good, this is not good!

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.

If they knew, they'd never leave her alone, for fear she'd run off. And she was already making plans to save her mom from James.

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 always thought she successfully resisted, but now I'm not so sure.

1. What was your reaction when you realized that Alice had sketched Bella's house in Phoenix?
It was like, "Whoa! Maybe I can find that house!" LOL Just kidding (I live in Phoenix, just so you all know)! I thought it to be strange and had a big feeling that something was going to happen. @_@

2. Why do you think Bella chooses not to tell Alice and Jasper what is going on.
She didn't want them to get hurt or alert Edward of her plans. She wanted no one to get hurt over her blood. She loved them all. =)

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?
Hmm.. I don't really have a clue. I know Jasper was having alot on his mind but he is pretty powerful. Yet, Bella can do something once in a while to amaze us.
