Eclipse, the third book in this series follows Bella and Edward as they finish off their senior year. Bella is determined to do whatever it takes to be with Edward forever, even if that means having to undergo the difficult and painful transformation into a vampire. Jacob, her best friend who also happens to be a werewolf, is trying desperately to make up with Bella so that she might consider him as a possible choice as well. Edward wants her to go to college and have more human experiences before undergoing the transformation. He does see her as joining his family of vampires in the future, but doesnot want her to rush the process. Bella must make some very difficult decisions this year as she decides what to do after graduation. Plus, there have been a series of mysterious murders in nearby Seattle where Edward’s family believe some young vampires are loose. This book continues Bella’s story flawlessly making everything continually more complicated. Meyer does a great job of making the reader feel sympathy for everyone involved in this crazy love triangle. Definitely introduce this series to your students or friends. Once you start, you cannot put it down!
