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?
~ I feel that Jessica has reason to be upset...but I think she went a little to far. If she felt she was treated wrong, than just stop hanging with Bella, don't discourage others to stop as well.
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 feels that being somewhere that was "theirs", where he was, somewhere that proves he was real will help bring him to life to her. A sense of deja vu.
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?
~He is a teenage boy! They can be cocky! But he has seen Bella at her worse and he is the one bringing her back. He knows she isn't ready for him right now...but pursuing her shows Bella that he wants to be with her and he won't leave eher. I think that atleast. He hopes that she will se that he is making her happy again.
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?
~Not betraying her heart, just trying to open it up again. Yes she will love Edward for all her life, but she is still able to love Jacob. Maybe not to the full extent she was able to love Edward, but love still. He left her, she believes he is never coming back because he realized she was nothing special, just human. So she feels that Jacob loves her and she knows she could love him. So why not.
