Controversy

The main controversy is whether Bella is a decent role model for teen girls, specifically in the fourth book Breaking Dawn. Although the lovebirds remain abstinent before marriage, the fourth book is about their wedding and pregnancy. Some parents seem concerned that the outcome of Bella's decisions may promote teen sex to young readers. Do you think the books send a message that it's better to wait, or are they too descriptive and encouraging of teen sex?
