Keep in mind that we don't really know Leah. We never met her before Sam left her, and now she is a bitter, angry, lonely werewolf who has the pleasure of hearing Sam's thoughts. I don't blame her for retaliating. I also think Jacob and Leah are in similar places right now. Both abandoned by someone who loved them, and not because that person stopped loving them, but because they loved someone else more. Jake obviously wants to be left alone, and he's angry, just like Leah. Jake and Leah have both distanced themselves from the pack: Leah, emotionally, by refusing to be a 'team player' and bringing up Embry, and Jake, by running away to Canada. I feel bad for both of them. And on top of that, losing your dad? Leah is in an awful spot right now. No dad, she probably hates Emily (didn't they use to be like sisters?), no Sam, her brother is part of a group that is relatively fed up with her, she is also the lone female in that group, and to top it all off, she turns into a flipping mythical creature against her will! Poor Leah. :(

Wow--that was wonderfully put!!! :D
I mean I've heard a lot of people say that Leah and Jacob are similar, and I really didn't get what they meant--now it makes sence!!!!
Personality wise not so much--but situation wise, they are in exactly they same place! Some people have said that is the reason they want Leah and Jacob to be together, but I just don't see that happening.
But the difference between their problems is that Leah never saw it coming, she got her boyfriend taken by someone as close as her sister. Jacob knew it was unlikley (to end up with Bella) and she was already with Edward, a guy he totally hates.

Another way Leah and Jacob are similar is that they've both lost a parent.

Yes that is another way!
I hope they both end up with someone in the end!
Though Leah more so than Jacob.....because it's different for Jacob, he hasn't been without Bella for near as long as Leah has been without Sam. And I don't want Jacob to have to break his vow about loving Bella forever....or at least not so soon! He has to move on but, he can only go so far.

even before all the werewolf stuff leah didn't seem very friendly...in new moon bella says that she was always on the phone and stuff. plus she was spreading a rumor about the pack at the time (which was just about 3 of them).

i was re reading new moon a few days ago...there are only a few sentences there, but still.

Always on the phone? Sounds like a normal teenager to me. I know when I was a teenager, I tended to go off on my own at family events. It's really rather normal and has nothing to do with being friendly.

I don't remember a rumor. I've only read the books once (the first one and a half times).

I thought she might've been talking to Sam, but I think he'd imprinted by then. Maybe they were trying to sort out the wolf stuff - before Emily?

I really don't think that that's enough to say that she wasn't very friendly. In fact, I imagine that before Sam imprinted, she was probably as happy as she had ever been. He was the love of her life. She would've been friends with the others in the pack. She probably would've tried to help Sam cope, since he was the first to change, and he was all alone. I'm guessing that Sam's imprinting has changed Leah if not forever, then at least for a long, long time. And for Jake/Leah? I think that they could be really good friends, giving how similar their lives are right now. But do you think Leah could trust another pack member again? Even though imprinting is said to be 'rare', there has never been a pack this large before. And if I was Leah, I'm not sure that I would want to take the risk of having Jacob imprint on someone else. Or even having myself imprint on someone else. I have a feeling that Leah is going to be extremely wary of involving herself with anyone in the pack. She doesn't want to hurt herself like that again.

But that was after Sam phased & thats when she got mean. Because people had answers & no one would give them to her. People knew she was hurt, but didnt care.

Wait- Did Sam imprint as soon as he phased? Or was it later, after he'd (hopefully) explained everything to Leah?
