‘Twilight' is the first book in a series of young-adult novels about a teenager named Bella who's boyfriend, Edward, is a vampire. The author, Stephanie Meyers, is a Brigham Young University graduate.

Kristen Stewart stars a Bella; and Robert Pattinson is Edward.

"I have my tickets and my program, and I'm ready to go in," ‘Twilight' fan Elizabeth Taylor said. "I gotta be the first one to see Edward! I've been waiting for a year!"
