1. What sci-fi book do you think Renee found so good? Possibly, The Host? Recommend a good Sci-Fi book?
I don't really read sci-fi so I couldn't even hazard a guess here.
2. Did you catch on right away as to why Jacob was calling?
Nope. I thought he just missed Bella.
3. Were you surprised to learn of the altercation between Emmett and Paul? Who do you feel was at fault?
I was surprised. I didn't think there would have been an altercation between with Quilutes and the Cullens so quickly. I would have to go with Paul being at fault more because we do know from New Moon that he does have a temper.
4. Compare Bella's relationship with Charlie in chapter 2 to her relationship with Renee in chapter 3.
She loves them both obviously, but with Charlie, he's the father but he's not used to dealing with Bella, a teen-age girl, so he's pretty much oblivious to certain things whereas with Renee, she's used to Bella, she's been a teenage girl before, she knows her daughter. Renee is a bit more "in tune" with Bella as opposed to Charlie.
5. Come up with a plane crash scenario for Edward to try and think his way out of.
Both engines explode and the plane crashes into the ocean.
