Defining "New Moon" Release

"Defining New Moon"

Vocabulary Workbook for Unlocking the *SAT, ACT®, GED®, and SSAT®

October 26, 2009Why is Bella desolate and haggard? Will Jacob win her over with his infectious affability? Can Edward dare to flout the rules and summon the belligerent ire of the Volturi?

Test prep expert Brian Leaf is back with the follow-up to his popular Defining Twilight workbook! With Defining New Moon (Wiley; 978-0-470-53299-7; October 2009), students can reunite with Edward, Bella, and Jacob to learn more than 700 vocabulary words and synonyms found on the *SAT, ACT®, GED®, and SSAT®.

After only five months online, the Defining Twilight Facebook page has garnered more than 60,000 fans. Ordinarily you'd have to be Edward Cullen or at least vampy hunk Robert Pattinson to attract that kind of fan base. Why are these study guides so popular with students?

Leaf dishes, "The Twilight books contain a plethora of outstanding SAT vocabulary words, and fans are hungry for anything Twilight. It's a great synergy. When students find out about the Defining Twilight series, they are shocked, 'You mean I can raise my scores while reading Twilight? It feels like cheating!'"

Here’s the lowdown on the most recent guide, Defining New Moon:

  • Each chapter of the workbook gives you eight words taken from New Moon, with page references to read the words in context
  • Students define the words on their own before turning back to the workbook for actual definitions
  • Drills and quizzes help readers review and integrate what they've learned
  • Synonyms, Latin word parts, and memorization tools are included throughout the workbook

Just in time for the movie release on November 20 and right before the holiday season, Defining New Moon makes for the perfect gift or stocking stuffer!
