Bella was born in Forks, but her mother and father split up when she was six months old. She spent the majority of her young life in Californina and than later Phoenix, Arizona where she wasn't very popular and never felt as if she fit in. She is far too clumsy for her own good and tries to avoid sports and dancing.
When her mother remarried, Bella decided to move back to Forks to live with her father. She felt a bit guilty that her mother wasn't able to spend as much traveling with her new husband because of her, and so willingly, but not enthusiatically, she moved in with her dad. He bought her a truck and has tried to make her feel comfortable in her new home.
At school, Bella was greeted with great interest and made friends with a few people right away. She first saw Edward nad his family at lunch time and was told that they generally kept to themselves. In biology class. Bella was forced to take seat next to Edward, as it was the only empty seat in the room. He reacted strongely to her, making her think he hated her. It wasn't until two weeks later that Edward returned to school and Bella was able to properly meet him.

Ben was one of the students that Bella had a hard time remembering his name. He was there when the group went to LaPush for the day and helped gather fire wood. We don't hear much about him through ouy Twilight, but by the end he and Angela Webber are happily dancing together at the proom in spite of fact that she is much taller than him. Their relationship lasts over the summer and they regularly sit with Bella, Edward and Alice at lunch their senior year. Even though Angela lives close enough to walk to school, Ben picks her up every day.
Ben and Angela saw an oversized wolf when they were on route to a weekend picnic - Ben caught a stomach flu virus shortly thereafter. Angela came down with the flu later on and Ben called to cancel the group movie exercise, which left Bella to attend with Mike and Jacob. When Edward returned from his self-imposed exile, Ben continued to be Bella's friend along with Angela. Ben proved his loyalty to the pair when he had to be restrained by Mike from siding with Edward during the Edward-Jacob argument in front of Forks High school and Ben placed a $10 bet that in a fight Edward would defeat Jacob. Ben was a close friend of Austin Marks, they lived across the street from each other, and the two teen boys did lots of "guy stuff" together. Ben and Angela were both accepted to the University of Washington and planned to move to Seattle a few months after graduation. He attended the Cullen's graduation party with Angela.
