She starts off pretty slowly.. just give it some time. I loaned my book out (again) or else I could tell you where it picks up. I haven't been able to read anything but Harry Potter books for the last 6 years... in fact, I HATED reading until I picked up Twilight. Now I can finally say that reading is one of my hobbies again. Honestly though, I tried to read it this summer and I couldn't... but I saw the movie and then I just HAD to read it. There was no choice. Now I am super addicted. Just stick with it... you won't regret it!
