The Twilight series is the newest incarnation of the ever present teenage fantasy story. With its fan base growing every day, one must wonder how the story, and the themes it expresses, influences the readers in today's society. This paper seeks to explain how readers today interpret the story, how they feel about what age the series is appropriate for, and how they apply those themes to their lives. This paper presents both sides of the main Twilight series debate, that being: Is the Twilight series negatively influencing the lives ofteenagers, or can it be viewed as purely entertainment? In other words, can they differentiate reality from fantasy at such a young age?
