The main conflict in the book is brought about by Bella walking in and stepping in front of the fan and her smell went to where Edward was sitting. When Bella had to sit next to Edward in the class they had together it caused tension between the two. Tension because Edward is a vampire and he loves human blood, while Bella is a human that doesn't know about Edward being a Vampire. After Bella is assigned to sit next to Edward he starts missing days of school causing her to think that he disliked her or something.

I honestly love this book! There isn't a time where I don't want to stop reading. When I first saw the movie I really liked it especially since it involved teenage love that had a conflict of one being a human and the other being a vampire. When I first read and saw this novel I was like "Awe Man I just got to keep reading!" and so I did. Bella and Edward started off pretty rough but eventually feelings got involved and they just connected even with their differences. I honestly would recommend this book if you like Love fantasy romance books.
