1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

Yes, Bella definitely went way too far to get out of the house. She could have thought of something better if she tried.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

That tells me that Alice and Edward are really close, and that maybe Edward looks up to Alice some.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

I thought Laurent chose to go to Denali to dig up information about the Cullens. For what, I didn't know. Why else would he go there? It definitely wasn't to try their diet out, that's for sure.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

Yes, I was surprised that Jasper felt Bella was worth it. I have absolutely no clue what lead him to tell her that.

1. What tactic do you think Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
well, i think she went too far honestly, she hurt charlie by saying the last words renee said when she left him, thhhaaaat was waaaay too harsh. i felt so bad for him during that whole scene but she was doing it to save his life pretty much and that helps.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
it says a lot. it shows the bond they have, and the bond that the whole family has. they both know everything about the other basically, he can read her thoughts, she can see his future. she is definitely understanding of bella and accepting of him loving her so that would alone form a close bond. it just shows how much they are really like brother and sister.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
he was a lot more tame than the other two. he was only with victoria and james because it was convenient for him, and because it was some company at least. he didn't want to piss off the cullens by following james and he probably knew that it would result in bad business and he was also intrigued by their way of life.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could feel that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
i have to say, this is one of my favorite moments in the book, i loove jasper. but anyway, he knows edward's feelings for bella and he knows that bella is more important to him than anything. he realizes that if something happens to bella edward would never be the same and he definitely would not want edward to go back to the way he was before her. although jasper may not be really close to bella at this point it is a touching moment and it's nice to see him in that way.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

A little.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

That they are really close.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

He was scared of the Cullens.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I was a little surprised that he would say that. He is normally one of the ones saying that Edward needed to stay away from Bella.

. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far? That is a tough one- Bella is being confronted with pure evil and danger in James, and I think she did what she had to do in order to keep Charlie in the dark about her circumstances; that even though she knew it would hurt deeply, she did the only thing she knew Charlie wouldn't argue with- she pulled a Renee!

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship? I think they are the closest outside of the couples themselves... with Alice's visions, she can reassure Edward that everything will be okay in this situation at this time.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?Maybe he grew tired of James' leadership; maybe he was intrigued by the permanent lifestyle Carlisle spoke of in chapter 18 and was tired of being a nomad.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion? Wow, I was so touched by this moment. I think he could see Edward's obvious love for her, and Bella's for Edward. I think he could feel that Bella didn't care much what happened to herself, but that her concern was for the Cullens and Charlie!

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

She cared only about charlie at that point so i doubt she was really thinking straight.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

I think their relationship is quite deep, because of the fact that alice doesn't retaliate and sink to his level she stays calm and makes him listen, she's quite strong willed so there's a lot of respect there, where as if emmett tried that edward would be like wtf who do you think you are.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

Because he obviously doesn't want to get involved with something that he may end up getting killed in, so he left to save him skin.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

Well, he's surrounded by all the cullens everyday so he obviously felt, edward deep and intense love for her (poor jasper), esmes's delight at edward being happy, carlisle happiness that edward was happy because of bella, alice's new found best friend, and emmett joy at something new and exciting to do.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

i felt so bad for Charlie. he must have been so hurt and confused. it was necessary though. even though it hurt him.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

they are really close. they are the most like brother and sister of all the Cullens, to me at least. though Edward and Emmett are pretty close, him and Alice just hace a really special bond.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

i think he was intrigued by the idea of living another way...if only just to try it. and he knew that somehow something bad might come out of his old group threatening the Cullens and the only other coven of vampires practicing vegetarianism was the Denali coven.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

i want surprised at all. Jasper can feel every emotion each Cullen felt toward Bella. they were all (well most) were absolutely delighted with Bella. Carlisle and Esme were so happy that Edward had finally found someone to be with after being alone for so many years. Emmett felt happy that he had a new sister basically, haha a new toy to make fun if you will. and Alice. Jasper feels the happiness Alice feels about having a new best friend. and that is probably the most important to him. that and also the feelings from Edward. how he is so deeply in love with Bella. how could she not be worth it? bringing the Cullens together further into happiness over something common, as a group or coven and also individual happiness.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
Gosh, I teared up when this all happened. I really didn't see any other option for her though. She did it to protect him. Poor Charlie.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
Alice is an angel. I think they have a really strong bond. Their peculiar gifts probably helped them form a stronger bond. You can def. tell they are the closest of all the siblings.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I don't think he wants to get caught up in any trouble. He'd rather not fight for a Coven he's not that close to.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
No, I wasn't surprised. I think they all see how much Bella means to Edward. Alice's premonition doesn't hurt either!

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
I started to cry when she was doing all of this. I got that she had to use that to get out, but it was a bit harsh.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?
I love that Edward is close to Alice. I think that it's their gifts that keep them closer as brother and sister, than the others.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I think he was afraid of dying. And that the life-style they introduced him to was intriguing to him.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I think that he sees that Bella is really concerned not for her own safety, but for everyone else's, and that her feelings for Edward, and Edward's feelings for her are really something worth saving.

1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?

Yep. She hurt Charlie in the worst possible way that she could. She knew that he still wasn't over Renee, and she used that to really hurt him. It was necessary though, to get him to let her go without a fight.

2. There is a lot of interaction among the Cullens. Aside from Carlisle, the one person who can get an upset Edward to listen is Alice. What do you think that says about their relationship?

I think their relationship is a lot closer than Edward's with any of the other Cullens because they share mental talents. A lot of the conversations they have are in their heads, and they can see each other very clearly in their heads. Edward loves Alice like a little sister and I think he respects her opinion the most.

3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?

Possibly because it was in his best self-interest. He might have known that it would end with James and Victoria's deaths. James and Victoria were going up against 7 highly skilled vampires. They were no match for the Cullens. Laurent probably didn't care enough, or at all, about James and Victoria to get killed over them. I think he was intrigued by the life they lead also, and probably had hopes of having a family like the Cullens.

4. Were you surprised that Jasper could feel that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?

I was surprised that he thought Bella was worth it, especially after reading the partial draft of Midnight Sun. I would have thought that he would put Alice's safety and happiness first over Edward's happiness. But, Alice now loved Bella, which probably led Jasper to his conclusion. It would hurt Alice if Bella were killed.
