1. When Bella made the connection between the thief and the Seattle newborns, were you surprised? If not, when did you figure it out?
I was surprised, I had no idea that they were related! When she realised what was happening, I could feel teh panic that she was feeling - it took me by surprise! And I was like "oh no, Edward is going to go mental!!" 2. How did you feel about Jess making light of the "friendship" she shared with Bella? Would you have reacted the same way Bella reacted?
I would have done the same. They were friends before, and it's nice to end high school on a good note with everyone! I would have acted the same as I wouldn't want to fight with people at my graduation!3. Do you think Bella would have been more excited to graduate if there wasn't the danger from Seattle looming over her? Or do you think she still would have been contemplating the "ending" of her human life?
No, I don't think Bella would ever be excited about graduation, even if she wasn't with Edward & wasn't gonna become a vampire LOL. 4. Charlie expresses some concern about not being able to give Bella everything, yet Bella tells him he's been the best dad. How honest do you think Bella was being in that whole conversation?
I think she was being honest. I think Charlie would do anything for Bella if she asked him to; help her if she were in trouble etc. I just think their relationship is more casual than a typical relationship between parents and their children. But just because they don't tell one another that they love each other all the time doesn't mean that Charlie is any less of a parent to her.
