We’re taking a trip back to Forks to discuss New Moon, the second book in the Twilight saga. Let’s talk about death, youth, religion, and racism—and why Edward being a creep is less troubling than Bella wanting to be young forever.
Warning: Because of the content of the book, this episode includes discussions of suicidal ideation and suicide.
