“An MTV reporter described the Comic-Con crowd’s frenzied reaction to the stars’ arrival as “Elvis-like.” Fremont teen Georgina Tena agreed. She drove down that morning, just to catch a glimpse of the film’s preview footage.
“When the ‘Twilight’ panel went on,” she said, “it was just crazy.”
It was actually Tena’s cousin, 17-year-old Christopher McElvogue of Newark, who discovered the books and insisted she start reading.”
“It’s a good book, so I fell in love with it instantly,” said Tena, an incoming freshman at San Francisco’s Academy of Art University. “It’s so easy to relate to. The main character has to go through her parents’ divorce, moving, first love — real events that happen to teenagers.”
