We are upset about the books because it tells young girls that abuse is okay. In fact, it tells them that this is the perfect loving relationship, which is very far from the truth. The worst part is that it never addresses the problems with it. I have read plenty of books with abuse in them, but this is one of the few I've seen where abuse is portrayed as GOOD. In fact, abuse is desirable in these books.
I am upset because girls think this is love.
I am upset because girls will search out men like Edward.
I am upset because girls will be controlled and abused, but think it is okay because of Bella and Edward.
I am upset because girls will DIE from that abuse.
