1. Why do you think Bella doesn't want to go to the spring dance? She could easily just have said to anyone, "Let's just go as friends". Why is it that from day one, none of the boys appealed to her? I think Bella didn't want to go to the spring dance for various reasons. One, I think she was totally freaked out by the invites she got. She was not used to all of the attention and didn't know how to deal with it really. Second, I think Bella has a low self-esteem and was afraid that she would embarrass herself if she went to the dance. Thirdly, Bella didn't want to go to the dance with any of the boys who asked her and she was fearful that saying yes would lead them on and draw even more unwanted attention from them, especially Mike. None of the boys appealed to Bella, because her heart belonged to Edward, although she may not have known it, from the moment she saw him for the first time.
2. Bella asks Edward if he has multiple personality disorder because he either seems to be overly friendly or sarcastic moments apart. To what did you attribute Edward's odd behavior? By this point, I started to get the feeling that Edward liked Bella, but didn't know how to deal with that knowledge.
