I so wanted to hate this book.
About a year ago, I got into an argument with my 13 year old cousin about it.
Me: “Emma, the book is clearly for pre-teens, similar to you, and it’s all about adolescent longing and how you’re too young to actually kiss any boys or do anything with them, but you’re starting to think about them all the time. It’s pretty lame and transparent, actually.”
Emma: “Katie, actually, you’re full of crap. I love it, Olivia (cousin, 18) loves it, Charlotte (cousin, 21) loves it. Everyone loves it. Get over it. Until you read it, I don’t want to talk to you about it again.”
Emma, I am sorry. You were right. I was wrong. I love Twilight. I am now going to need to read every book and every off shoot and probably see the films too.
