The Host Chapter 12 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • It's back into the desert. All those bad ideas from Chapter 11 catch up with Wanderer fairly quickly. She ends up dehydrated and, well, basically dying on the ground.
  • She and Melanie lie there and think about death for a while until they pass out.
  • They wake up when someone splashes water on their face. They're exhausted, dazed, and using a first-person plural pronoun to refer to themselves. Weird, right?
  • When they're able to open their eyes, they recognize the man: Uncle Jeb.
