Expert Answers

Five events that lead to the climax:

  1. Bella Swan moves to Forks, Washington
  2. Bella encounters Edward Cullen in science class and is rescued by him from being crushed by an out of control van
  3. Bella falls in love with Edward
  4. Bella discovers that the Cullenses are vampires
  5. Bella plays baseball with the Cullenses and encounters James, Laurent, and Victoria

I would say that the climax is James's attack of Bella and fight with Edward.
