New Moon Extra - Miscalculation by Stephenie Meyer
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
The last sentence makes it. Rose spends the entire scene making excuses for her selfishness, being mesmerized by her own looks and generally disregarding both Bella and Edward's feelings.
But that last sentence, when she calls for Emmett suddenly, that is where a crack finally surfaes in the Rosalie we all love to hate. Suddenly she is realizing just how much she screwed up, and if she's wrong about one thing; what else is she wrong about?
And the fact that she calls for Emmett, the big lovable brother that everyone is fond of, makes her even more likable. Here is this big teddy bear that she is in love with and who (somehow) loves her in return.
This piece is humanizing for Rosalie. It doesn't bring much in the way of surprise, but it adds depth.
In a side note, I think that Meyer's style is instantly recognizable to fans and that she would have lost that bet.
