Quote #1

And If I couldn't find a niche in a school with three thousand people, what were my chances here? (1.61.3)

At her large school in Phoenix, Bella always felt like an outsider. If she couldn't find any friends there, how will she in tiny Forks? Why do you think it is that Bella doesn't fit in? Is she's simply born to be among vampires instead of humans?

Quote #2

Sometimes I wondered if I was seeing the same things through my eyes that the rest of the world was seeing through theirs. Maybe there was a glitch in my brain. (1.62)

Bella feels like she just doesn't fit in. Little does she know, her feelings of isolation make her quite similar to the Cullens.

Quote #3
