Student Review: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner (Meyer)

Title: The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner

Author: Stephenie Meyer
Genre: Fantasy, Fiction, Vampire
Pages: 178
Rating: 4 out of 5 stars

"The Short Second Life of Bree Tanner," a novel by Stephenie Meyer, describes the life of Bree Tanner when she becomes a vampire. At first, Bree spends her time with Fred, a social outcast, to avoid being killed. As she gets older, she meets Diego, who becomes her best friend. One day, when Diego goes to talk to their creator, Riley, he never returns. The newborns, including Bree, are taught how to fight. They are supposed to defeat their enemy coven, the Cullens, but it becomes a race to kill Bella.

I picked this book because I had read all of the Twilight books, and was craving more. The part of the book that really stood out to me was where Riley let each vampire sniff the shirt he stole from Bella. It is where the book changes from a fight against the Cullens to a race to devour Bella. The most interesting character to me was Diego because his personality was the closest to mine. The theme of the book was to never trust a vampire.

Overall, I thought that the book was really good! My only dislike was that the end dragged on. People who have read the Twilight series, and enjoyed them, would like this book.

Now this leaves me wondering…if you could be any of the vampires, in any of the Twilight books, who would you be and why?

Interesting question, Caroline.  I can't wait to see how readers respond.  A great book choice for Twilight fans, but also for the Halloween season!
