The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner by Stephenie Meyer

I just picked this book up last night at Titles, and started it immediately. The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner is a small part of the Twilight novels.
This story is told from the perspective of Bree Tanner-a character who is easily overlooked in the Eclipse Story, but once you get to know her, you will gain a whole new perspective to Eclipse.

Bree Tanner is a newborn vampire. She lives with a dangerous group of other newborns. The others she lives with are reckless, violent and hungry. They only seek human blood. Even though they have been warned to be careful, many of this group don't listen and only want to hunt humans.
Bree is different, she is more cautious than the rest. Bree looks to blend in with the group and above all not get noticed. When she becomes friends with Diego, the two of them start to share their thoughts and ideas and slowly piece together what the purpose of the group is. Bree and Diego now realize they must stick together in order to survive.
It's interesting to read about these newborn vampires who aren't trained by kind, patient Carlisle. It is also intriguing to learn about vampires outside of Bella's limited perspective. I found myself really liking and rooting for Bree, even when I knew how it was all going to end for her.
This is well worth the read- all Twilight fans will love this added bonus to the story. Check out the website too:
