This second book in the Twilight Series shares a few surprises. We don't want to give anything away, so we'll try to tread carefully.
Bella is recooping from the injuries she sustained in the previous book, but more so for the emotional toll of a break-up. Fearing for her safety after Bella is cut and Edward's family of vampires must stave off their hunger for blood, Edward opts to get out of her life for her safety. It takes Jacob to show Bella that she needs to go on. Yet, what she learns about Jacob is equally perplexing to Bella.
Meanwhile, danger is never too far away, so once again, Bella gets caught up in the adventure of a lifetime.
During NEW MOON, the focus is clearly on Bella and Jacob's relationship. Edward is absent. This creates a new spin and allows more insight into Jacob's character and friends.
While different, the story is still gripping and had both of us on the edge of our seat. As for other reviews that say there is adult content and sex, not really. We both give this a thumbs up and think it is an excellent series for both parents and their tween/teens to share.
