Inspired by a vivid dream, Stephenie Meyer, a stay-at-home mom, wrote a manuscript that started a worldwide sensation that has yet to abate. In 2005 her debut novel, Twilight, crashed onto the shore of teen literature like a literary tsunami. Four books later, she had become the top-selling author in the world. When the final book in the Twilight series, Breaking Dawn, was released in 2008, more than a million copies were sold on the first day alone. The popular culture phenomenon of Stephenie Meyer and her writing is much more than the sum total of her weeks on the bestseller list, however.

Stephenie Meyer: In the Twilight looks at the life and work of this author, beginning with her childhood and covering her teen years and life before stardom. This volume also profiles Meyer’s world since becoming a cultural icon. In addition to discussing Meyer’s writing style, the chapters also explore each of her books, with a final chapter focusing on her presence in social media and public events.

As young and old continue to devour her every word, this volume puts into perspective the work and impact that Meyer has around the world. Stephenie Meyer: In the Twilight will be of interest to teachers and librarians, as well as to middle and high school students—not to mention adults—who are interested in learning more about their favorite author.

Review:


The latest addition to the Scarecrow Studies in Young Adult Literature series, this volume provides some key biographical information about Stephenie Meyer as well as an overview of her Twilight series (Children's Literature Association Quarterly)

This Scarecrow Studies in Young Adult Literature volume presents Meyer’s journey from a mother who wrote 'just for fun' to pay off the family van to an unspoiled and sensitive international success surrounded by editors, publicists, and security guards. The authors acknowledge the widespread criticism of Meyer’s novels but point out that young adult authors focus on story and identification rather than long description or layered literary techniques. ... The chapters that focus on Meyer’s positive yet self-effacing personality will provide writing inspiration and models of conduct for teen girls. The analysis is fair and balanced, and the chapters that trace her work are helpful to teachers and librarians who wish to discuss or incorporate them into the curriculum. If you have Meyer’s works in your collection, you will want this guide. (VOYA)
