Twilight!

Ok, I am a huge fan! I was recently reading a few negative things about the series and I wanted to put in my two cents. Why is it that we live in a world where everything has to be taken so seriously? Everything has to have some lesson for the kids and some profound moral to the story? What ever happen to books being an escape? A place where you don't have to think about what everyone else wants in you or out of you. I've read the series 3 times all the way though and in my opinion it is exactly what we need. Kids, teens and even adults need something to take their minds off of all the craziness in the world and Twilight was that for me. These books are a place where I can take my mind off all the sad things around and just let myself be absorbed in the story. I didn't take it seriously, it's not War And Peace, it's a book written for teens! It's supposed to be silly, if you saw the movie you would see what Stephenie Meyer had in mind when she wrote it. It's for entertainment not to learn lessons.
Ok, so that's my 2 cents.
