In New Moon, lies, secrets, and deceit are mainly related to protecting loved ones from harm. Edward lies to Bella about his love for her because he believes he poses a danger to her life. Jacob keeps his werewolf transformation a secret from Bella because he doesn’t want to draw her into his troubles. Bella lies to Charlie about her reckless behavior and the true pain she feels about losing Edward because she doesn’t want to worry him. Finally, the biggest secret Bella keeps from her human world is that vampires and werewolves inhabit it.
