Divided into three parts,the first and third sections are written from Bella Swan’s perspective and the second is written from the perspective of Jacob Black. The novel directly follows the events of the previous novel,Eclipse,as Bella and Edward Cullen get married,leaving behind a heartbroken Jacob. When Bella faces an unexpected situation,she does what it takes to undergo the ultimate transformation and fight the final battle to save her love. Meyer finished an outline of the book in 2003,but developed and changed it as she wrote New Moon and Eclipse,though the main and most significant storylines remained unchanged. Little,Brown and Company took certain measures to prevent the book’s contents from leaking,such as closing forums and message boards on several fansites and providing a special e-mail address for fans to send in links to leaks and spoilers online. Breaking Dawn was released on August 2,2008 at midnight release parties in over 4,000 bookstores throughout the US. From its initial print run of 3.7 million copies,over 1.3 million were sold in the US and 20,000 in the UK in the first 24 hours of the book’s release,setting a record in first-day sales performance for the Hachette Book Group USA. The book was highly successful,selling over 6 million copies in 2008,and was the third best-selling novel of 2008 behind Twilight and New Moon. Breaking Dawn received mixed reviews from critics and is the most controversial book in the series,as it explored more mature themes and concepts. However,the novel was awarded the British Book Award for “Children’s Book of the Year”. It was translated in 38 languages with rights sold to over 50 countries. The book is adapted by a two-part film,with the first part already released on November 18,2011 and the second part set to be released on November 16,2012.

Basketball: Basketball is a team sport,the objective being to shoot a ball through a basket horizontally positioned to score points while following a set of rules. Usually,two teams of five players play on a marked rectangular court with a basket at each width end. Basketball is one of the world’s most popular and widely viewed sports. A regulation basketball hoop consists of a rim 18 inches in diameter and 10 feet high mounted to a backboard. A team can score a field goal by shooting the ball through the basket during regular play. A field goal scores two points for the shooting team if a player is touching or closer to the basket than the three-point line,and three points (known commonly as a 3 pointer or three) if the player is behind the three-point line. The team with the most points at the end of the game wins,but additional time (overtime) may be issued when the game ends with a draw. The ball can be advanced on the court by bouncing it while walking or running or throwing it to a teammate. It is a violation to move without dribbling the ball,to carry it,or to double dribble (to hold the ball with both hands then resume dribbling). Various violations are generally called “fouls”. Disruptive physical contact is penalized,and a free throw is usually awarded to an offensive player if he is fouled while shooting the ball. A technical foul may also be issued when certain infractions occur,most commonly for unsportsmanlike conduct on the part of a player or coach. A technical foul gives the opposing team a free throw. Basketball has evolved many commonly used techniques of shooting,passing,dribbling,and rebounding,as well as specialized player positions and offensive and defensive structures (player positioning) and techniques. Typically,the tallest members of a team will play “center”,”power forward” or “small forward” positions,while shorter players or those who possess the best ball handling skills and speed play “point guard” or “shooting guard”. While competitive basketball is carefully regulated,numerous variations of basketball have developed for casual play. Competitive basketball is primarily an indoor sport played on a carefully marked and maintained basketball court,but less regulated variations are often played outdoors in both inner city and remote areas.
