Since "Twilight's" release in 2005, Americans have been captivated by this impossible romance. On numerous fan sites and blogs such as Stephenie Meyers' fan site, twilightlexiconforum.com, you can read all the praised comments and high ratings people have said about the saga. In addition, because "Twilight" series has been such a big hit, a movie is planned to be released Dec. 12.

In "Twilight," Bella falls in love with Edward Cullen, who just happens to be a vampire. Edward leaves Bella, and as soon as she thinks she'll give up, she meets a boy named Jacob, who is more than willing to be her friend and even more in "New Moon."

In the most recent book of this series, "Eclipse," Bella is finally ready to make up her mind. Will it be Edward, the vampire, who'll be with her "forever" or Jacob, the werewolf, who desperately wants to give her the option of a normal life?

In "Breaking Dawn," author Meyers will explain Bella's choice: Will she keep her mortality and be with her friend, Jacob, or will she choose to become immortal to stay with Edward forever?
