Bella Swan grew up in sunny Phoenix, Arizona with her mother Renee after her parents divorced. After her mother remarries, Bella goes to live with her dad Charlie in Forks, Washington and is faced with the challenge of making new friends. This isn't easy for her because she is incredibly shy and lacks confidence. Many guys at Bella's high school become attracted to her but she becomes intrigued by Edward Cullen who seems not to care for her. Bella's extreme clumsiness and attraction to danger comes in handy for Edward, which gives him the opportunity to constantly save her and become her hero. They fall deeply in love and Edward soon admits to Bella that he is a vampire. Bella doesn't seem to be fazed by his immortality, in fact she covets it.
