1) What do you think about Charlie and Bella’s decision to keep information secret from Renee? Which information do you think they will share and which information do you think they will hide? What do you think Renee’s reaction will be?
I think they will hide Renesmee. She's definitely going to be difficult to explain, and Renee would want to come and see her straight away. I think they'll continue with the illness story, at least for now, as an excuse to keep Bella away from Renee. I don't know what they're going to do when that excuse runs thin, though.
2) How are the activities that the Cullens are described as doing on page 516 indicative of their personalities?
Edward's playing the piano, so it's creative, Esme's looking at her blueprints, Carlisle's reading, Rosalie and Emmett are making a house of cards, and Jasper and Alice are just being together. It's all pretty obvious, really.
3) What challenge might you have suggested to Emmett if you were Bella? What might you have decided would happen if you won or lost?
Probably the same challenge and the same conditions.
4) Bella states that it was “like I had been born to be a vampire”. How do you feel about that statement? Is she right?
I think she is correct. I think fate intended her for this life.
