Good Life Lessons

"New Moon: Because what healthier lesson to teach teenage girls than that attempted suicide will make their boyfriends come back to them."

I've read the whole Twilight series, mostly out of curiousity because my niece was hooked on it, and all the internet buzz. Ugh. Not only are they ill-written, Bella is the mary-sue-iest Mary Seu Evah! -- but the message in the books: stalking and desperate neediness and control are good things is a bit worrisome to me. I can see why it appeals to the 13-year-old girl crowd, but to adults? If vampires float your boat, there are far better series out there for you.

And they don't sparkle.

I totally agree. I would also love a copy of that poster. Disturbing.
