1. What did you think tactic Bella uses to get out of her house? Does she go too far?
It worked. Maybe she could have found a more gentle, less hurtful way to do it -- but she couldn't afford to lose, because she didn't have time for a Plan B.
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 Edward is closer to Alice than to his other siblings. They also have similar supernatural gifts in terms of knowing things that others don't, so I'm sure that adds something to their relationship.
3. Why do you think Laurent chose to leave James and Victoria and head to Denali?
I don't think he cared enough, one way or the other, about the outcome to risk his life to save either James/Victoria or the Cullens. After all, he wasn't the leader of the coven and he had nothing to do with the plan to hunt down Bella. Perhaps he didn't want to be bothered -- after all, there wasn't much chance that the tracker would share Bella's blood with him anyway. So why bother?
4. Were you surprised that Jasper could felt that Bella was worth it. What do you think lead him to that conclusion?
I wasn't surprised. Jasper has been in love himself, after all. He is also able to sense Edward's emotions when he's around Bella. So, Jasper knows, first hand, just how much Edward loves Bella, and clearly that's what makes her worth it.
