The story has WEAK characters: Beau (Bella) is a guy who isn't really into girls, hates cars, driving fast, but loves doing housework such as cooking and cleaning. What teen boy doesn't like cars and driving fast?
Meyer claims that the story is a 'gift' to her fans. So, Meyer probably spent a few hours on her computer doing 'search' and 'replace' - then changing the ending.
I do have to say that it took a lot of nerve for Meyer to actually publish this novel, and actually be proud of it. There's WAY better Fan-Fic than this.
