"Once upon a time, a girl named September grew very tired indeed of her parents' house, where she washed the same pink-and-yellow teacups and matching gravy boats every day, slept on the same embroidered pillow, and played with the same small and amiable dog."

Have you seen Eclipse yet?
If you have seen Eclipse, the newest Twilight movie, and are foaming at the mouth for more of Edward, Jacob, Bella, or which ever vamp or wolfie floats your boat-check out the Twilight Graphic Novel!
The graphic novel takes us back to the beginning. Back to when Bella leaves Phoenix and makes her way to Forks where she meets the mysterious Edward Cullen.
Okay. So I have to admit, I am a fan of the books. The movies? Eh, I could take or leave them. I was skeptical of the graphic novel, thinking it would be too much like the movies. WOW! Was I wrong! The artwork by Young Kim is absolutely breathtaking! It is beautiful, and the story adaptation is spot on for what should be included.
So, if you're waiting to see Eclipse, or waiting for Breaking Dawn, check out a copy.
