This parody skewers the best-selling novel about the sparkly undead. Whether you're a "Twilight" lover or hater, you'll laugh out loud. Readers have raved:
"I love Twilight. But I swear I think I almost love this even more."
"This was hilarious!"
"boi i luv this book!! amazing"

"Twilight" readers will enjoy the dry humor and subtle commentary on that best seller's view of the world. (If you haven't read "Twilight," you'll just say, "Hunh?" If you've seen the movie, but haven't read the book, we're not sure what you'll think...let us know!)
Do not confuse this parody with fan fiction. This is a true parody. It follows Stephenie's book non-event by non-event, exposing the ridiculous every step of the way. Its stars are Edward Sullen and Bella Swoon, and boy is she clumsy.
Because author, Sue Knott, believes Twilight's endless descriptive passages of vampire hunkieness could not possibly be rendered more absurd, only the "meat" of the original novel is mocked. That makes this parody blessedly shorter than the lengthy vampire tome it skewers...but you'll wish there were more!
This is the perfect gift for friends who don't understand why you don't like Twilight.
Read it. Laugh. And come back to share your review.
Here's a peek at the preface:
I’d given a lot of thought to how I would like to die. And this was probably going to be as close to perfect as I could get.
I was going to die a noble death. Saving my boyfriend and his family, who were all already dead, from the threat of a second death…or at least from a good thrashing. How could you get any nobler than that?
And the guy crossing the room to kill me? He was a sadistic nutcase who was going to film the whole thing so my undead boyfriend and his undead family could see for themselves how truly noble I was.
The killer smiled as he approached. And I smiled back…straight into the camera…whispering “Edward, I love you” with just the right amount of longing, bravery and selflessness.
Edward Sullen was to die for. And that was exactly what I was about to do.
