1. Jessica switches allegiance by siding with Lauren and convincing others to not go on the group outing. Do you feel that, based on Bella's actions the night of the bar incident, her reaction is justified?Yea..a little bit. I dont like Jessica and I dont like Lauren, but it was wrong of Bella to use Jessica like that. So..she has the right to not want to be friends with Bella I suppose. Not that they were very close to begin with. Anyway, I am not really to concerned about that.
2. When the motorcycle loses power to summon Edward's voice, Bella begins to search for the meadow. Why do you think she chooses this as her next attempt to conjure his voice?She mentions that the meadow most hold some of Edward's essence (so to speak), since it was his special place to be alone
3. Bella is amazed that Jacob never gives up on pursuing her, despite rejection after rejection. She wonders where he gets the confidence. Based on what we know of Jacob, what do you think he reasons are for being so confident and not giving up?Ah..rejection after rejection? Seriously? I would call it more like getting mixed signals. Thats where he gets his confidence from. I would say that Jacob is not giving up becasue he really likes Bella and there is a chance (slim as it is) that she might change her mind and pick him. At this point we don't know if Edward is coming back, so as long as he is not in the picture Jacob knows he has a tiny chance. Now with Edward back...its a different story
4. Bella knows that part of her will always love Edward, yet she begins to entertain the idea of Jacob being more than just a friend. Do you see this as a betrayal of her heart, or is she smart to press forward and think about moving on?If this was reality we are speaking about, I would say give yourself a chance to be happy. (I had tears in my eyes when she heard Edwards voice saying "Be happy" ). But I was still waiting for Edward to come back, so I didn't want her to get involved with anyone else
