“Twilight” by Stephanie Meyer
ISBN-13: 978-0316015844 Publisher: Hachette Book Group USA

Isabella “Bella” Swan is positive about three things.  First, her classmate, Edward Cullen, is a vampire.  Second, there was a part of him (and she didn’t know how potent that part might be) that thirsted for her blood.  And third, she had fallen unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.  The first book of the series, the Twilight saga has been adapted into movies and become a worldwide phenomenon.
