On page 4 Bella states, “I lied.  I’d always been a bad liar, but I’d been saying this lie so frequently lately that it sounded almost convincing now.”

On page 10 we read that Bella, “was ivory, skinned, without even the excuse of blue eyes or red hair, despite the constant sunshine.  I had always been slender, but soft somehow, obviously not an athlete; I didn’t have the necessary hand-eye coordination to play sports without humiliating myself. “

Also on page 10, Bella tells the readers, “I didn’t relate well to people my age. Maybe the truth was that I didn’t relate well to people, period.”

On page 97 we learn when Edward asks Bella, “So you faint at the sight of blood?”  “I didn’t answer.  I closed my eyes again and fought the nausea with all my strength, clamping my lips together.”

 Bella is an attractive, if yet pale skinned girl with brown hair, brown eyes, slim, and soft.  She is clumsy and has poor athletic skills.  She faints at the sight of anyone’s blood.
