There’s a reason why this debut novel by an unknown author became a worldwide bestseller and turned into an equally popular movie franchise (see Beliefnet's Spiritual Lessons of Twilight here!). Twilight is more than a teenage vampire story. It speaks to the inner longings of everyone to be loved fiercely. In the book, the ordinary Bella has her normal life is turned inside out when she meets and falls in love with Edward, a vampire. He devotes himself to her fully, protecting her at all costs from the ravenous pursuit of other vampires. Everyone wants to be loved the way Edward loves Bella, and fantasy though it may be, Twilight makes you believe it can actually come true.
