1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
A little blood doesn't bother me however I could never be a surgeon.
2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
I wasn't afraid for Bella b/c Edward was to concerned with wanting to know what happened to her.
3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree completely with Edward. Bella is mature for her age but it is because of how she was raised.
4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
Edward is trying to communicate with her but he is still being reserve.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
Nope. Just if is a really big wound, I turn around. It makes me anxious to see, but I don't get sick or anything like that.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that there was blood around might endanger her?
Not really, because her own blood was never exposed.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
Both. I think he said that because of Bella's personality. But physically, I'm sure she looks like a junior.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
Well, he was in a better mood, compared to the previous chapters. I thought he was focusing more on getting to know Bella, rather than to think about her blood. He was being careful, though.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
I get kind of queasy, but not to a point where I would faint.. just get a little light headed maybe.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
No, because she was not bleeding personally. I actually didn't even think about Mike's finger when Edward showed up. Thus far in the book, it hadn't really explained how hard it is for them to be around blood.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree with it because she's just so responsible. Not many people will sacrafice their feelings to make others happy without complaining.. or let alone tell soemone outloud that their mother is their best friend.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
He showed a caring side for the first time. Yes, he did save her life, but look at how he responded to her afterwards. Finding her right away after she's outside about to pass out and almost sounding scared that she might be hurt and then thinking he might have to avenge Mike Newton cause he thought he might have killed her.. swoon.. lol

Yes! :)

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?

Not in the first reading. I just re-read it and I was surprised that Edward seems relieve when Mikes told him that she didn’t have time to sting herself…

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?

I agree. I work with teenage in high school and there is so much more Lauren than Bella in my class…

I like the way he’s asking that to her… Like he hope having other answer that may explain every thing… :)

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

For once, he was kind and caring… More relax… Truly gentlemen! :)

Just want to say - I LOVE this chapter-by-chapter analysis - Thank you to whomever came up with it!

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
Not in real life, no. Sounds weird, but when I have to deal with real situations involving blood and wounds, I cope quite well, but watching it on TV or in films makes me feel queasy. And ER-type stuff is worse than battle-scene tpye stuff. Weird, huh?

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
No. I suppose, knowing that he was a vampire, that I should have, but to be perfectly honest, I was reacting pretty much like Bella at this point. Whenever he appeared, my pulse raced, and I was just waiting for her to get on and figure it out (that he's a vamp), and for him to get on and kiss her. Reading these books made me feel 17 again - more than I did when I was 17, if that makes sense??

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree. Her selflessness in moving to Forks in the first place, her concern for Jess over the Mike thing, the fact that she kept Edward's 'secret' over the van accident - she's a lot more mature than most of the 16/17 year olds I know. More than anything, it's her ability to see things from other people's perspectives, that (to me) is the biggest part of maturity.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
It's hard to remember what exactly I was thinking the first time I read it, to not let what I know now (having read the other books, and especially Midnight Sun) affect how I read this chapter. BUT, I what I do remember thinking is that he had obviously made a decision. Having ignored her for 6 weeks, he has obviously now decided to try to form some kind of relationship with her. His warnings meant (to me), that although he had tried to do what's 'right', he was drawn to her in some way: "I'm tired of trying to stay away from Bella"

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
Yes, I get sick when I see blood. Not by the smell of it, not if I know it's fake. But with real blood...

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
No. I never even considered that to be honest.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agreed, I already found her very mature.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
A real gentlemen. It felt like he had made a choice and that he was going to stick to it now.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
Not in the least. I find all blood and it's irony smell fascinating.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
Naw, he was being a gentleman. It wasn't her blood, so he had good self control.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree. She was a child that had to mature quickly due to her family (mom especially) lack of responsibilities.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
That he finally came to terms with himself that he couldn't stay away from her. Different because he was not in the least mean to her. He was concerned, and even insisted on taking her home. From this chapter on, he stops trying to avoid her.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?
No not at all! I have to watch the needles and such or I faint! So I am the opposite.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?
No not really. I felt that he had control of his blood lust by this time.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?
I agree she was made to become mature and responsible at a young age because of her mother.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?
He had 'dealt' with his issues or found out the reasons behind his blood lust for Bella so understood himself better so was able to move on and become her protector.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?

I can see blood, but it's not my favorite sight. I have to look away when I get shots tho.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?

Yes, I thought the Edward would of had a lot less self control than he did. What he did really suprise me.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?

I agree. Bells is selfless, she is very independent for her age.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

First off, I love Edward's humor in this chapter. Edward seems happier and more open since he finally allowed himself to just be with Bella. He also seemed like he is more willing to take care of her.

1. Do you personally relate to Bella feeling queasy around blood?

No. I don't have any problems with blood at all, really. I do have a problem with needles, though, so if my class was doing something like that, I wouldn't have been able to do.

2. Were you afraid for Bella when Edward scooped her up? Did you think the fact that their was blood around might endanger her?

Hmm... Not really. It seemed like Edward was just trying to help her, since she was too weak to walk at that moment. I knew that Edward was okay with that, since most people's blood isn't the same to him as Bella's is, and he's clearly developing a resistance against Bella's.

3. Edward says that Bella doesn't seem like a junior in high school. Do you agree or disagree with that assessment?

I agree. Compared to Jessica, and some of the other girls, Bella is far more mature for her age.

4. What did you think about Edward's demeanor this chapter? How is it different than in the previous chapters?

He was polite again, and this time, he seemed to care about her as a friend. (Or perhaps more..?) Definitely different from before, whenever he seemed generally detached from Bella.
