11th Grader Madeline Armstrong on Why ‘Twilight’ Makes Her Read It ‘Over and Over’

Twilight by Stephenie Meyers is about Isabella “Bella” Swan, a seventeen-year-old girl who moves from Phoenix, Arizona to Forks, Washington. There, she meets Edward Cullen, a 103-year-old vampire, forever frozen in time in a teenage body. Despite his efforts to keep his vampirism a secret, Bella begins to uncover clues about his true nature, falling in love with him in the process. As Bella and Edward grow closer, new dangers arise, and both must choose whether their spark is worth the risk to Bella’s life. 

11th Grader Madeline Armstrong, a tennis player for Ukiah High, says that Twilight is her favorite book. Armstrong  explained  “It constantly makes readers want to read the book over and over and it is suspenseful.”

 Armstrong admitted to having read it three times. She enjoyed Bella in the book and did not enjoy Jacob in the book. Armstrong’s favorite part was the baseball scene. 

Despite her love for the novel, she thinks that the book would be more interesting if it was from Edward’s point of view. 

Meyers got mixed reviews on her book. Some enjoyed the tone and emotional drama that resonated deeply with teenagers. Others thought the novel lacked character development and depth. Despite this,  the book reached number five on The New York Times Bestsellers only one month after being released and soon after reached first. By 2008, it had been translated into thirty-seven different languages.
