A lot or a little?
The parents' guide to what's in this website.
What parents need to know
Parents need to know that if you're OK with your kids reading the Twilight book series or watching the related movies, then this site is perfectly acceptable, too. There are numerous ads floating around this site, so be careful of teens being tempted by Twilight merchandise. Although the main page of this site focuses on New Moon gossip and updates, things stay positive and aren't too tabloid.

Is it any good?
Some Twilight fan sites can be too basic, while others can seem intimidatingly obsessed. But not the Web site NEW MOON THE MOVIE. This is a light and fun site that combines gossip with good-natured debate. New Moon is a clean site that doesn't burst at the seams with content. Instead it's got nice big graphics and super current updates in anticipation of the film's release (including a countdown clock!). Where else are you going to hear about possible Twilight-themed kids' meal toys or the latest Robert Pattinson sighting? Readers hungry for conversation will enjoy the simple and well-mannered chat space that lets readers gush in mass their allegiance to Team Edward or Team Jacob -- or both.
Online interaction: Visitors can chat as "guests" or become members of Chat Roll, the web service that provides chatting capabilities for the New Moon site. Moderators are users selected by the site's administration who have proven themselves especially helpful.
