Those of you who recognize me know that I've participated on this board for many many years (less often of late).

I agree with ducky that tweens don't have much perspective. But I also don't think it makes much difference that Edward is a vampire. The issues involving teen sexuality, unhealthy relationships and suicide in the books are quite real--and those are the issues that made me reluctant to have my 12-yr-old read the book on her own.

Yes but I guess to me the "obsessive" love is a result of it being a "vampire" book.

My dd and I are reading them together. We've had some good discussions about Edward v. Jacob. (Lol, do you want your dd dating a vampire or a werewolf someday?)

I think the book is really about first love and more particularly, obsessive love. My dd understands that it's not just a vampire book.
