Midnight Sun is the Twilight story re-told in Edward Cullen's perspective.
“While I was procrastinating some real editing work (I’m always at my most creative when procrastinating), I started to wonder how the first chapter of Twilight would read if it were written from Edward’s perspective,” she wrote on her website back in 2008. “There is so much more to his side of the story than there is to Bella’s in that first chapter. After all, Bella only knows that an incredibly gorgeous boy is looking at her funny. Meanwhile, Edward is suffering through one of the most momentous days of his very long life!”
“First there’s the shock and frustration of not being able to hear Bella’s thoughts, then the wild, monstrous reaction to her scent, followed by the incredible expenditure of self-control that it takes to not kill her,” she added. “His side of Bella’s first day at Forks High School is a hundred times more exciting than her own.”
Stephenie was meant to release the novel years ago, but after some of its chapters got leaked online, she rage quit.
Now, however, Stephenie has had a lot of time on her hands (haven't we all?) and said she has been getting back to it. She also revealed once in an interview that her mother's one wish was to finish and release Midnight Sun.
So really, we have her mum to thanks for this!
