Following Bella's ill-fated 18th birthday party, EDWARD CULLEN (Robert Pattinson) and his family abandon the town of Forks, Washington, in an effort to protect her from the dangers inherent in their world. Heartbroken Bella sleepwalks through her senior year of high school, numb and alone, until her frozen heart is gradually thawed by her budding relationship with childhood friend JACOB BLACK (Taylor Lautner)--a member of the mysterious Quileute tribe, who has a supernatural secret of his own. In a race against the clock, Bella learns the secret of the Quileutes and Edward's true motivation for leaving her. She also faces the prospect of a potentially deadly reunion with her beloved that is a far cry from the one she'd hoped for."--Container

The phenomenon of multigenerational poverty is also addrressed underscoring the disturbing pattern of poverty begetting poverty.

Obvious poverty: America's homeless ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Stereotypes tell us it's easy to spot the homeless -- after all, life on the street tends to leave a mark on people. But is a "homeless profile" really meaningful? In today's economy a man in a business suit might well be living in his car; and besides, to those in society's upper echelons, homelessness is often invisible. This program offers a profound exploration of homelessness, focusing on factors like addiction, financial hardship, mental illness, domestic abuse, and the inability to transcend a criminal background. It also outlines methods for combating homelessness in communities and in American society. Interviews with homeless people bring a real-world understanding to the issues, shedding light on the job search frustrations, bureaucratic challenges, and lack of personal safety that go hand-in-hand with a shelterless existence. A part of the series Poverty in America
