The Host Chapter 39 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • It's been about four weeks since Wanda moved in with Jared and Jamie. The boys have gone on a supply run trip, so Ian takes this opportunity to swoop back in and romance Wanda.
  • They play soccer with Lily and Wes, who are an item now. Wes heads off to get water and takes a really long time to get back …
  • … because Jared and Jamie have returned! They've brought back a few unexpected things, one of them being a huge knife in Jamie's leg. He fell on it. (Bella Swan Syndrome?)
  • They're also being cagey about something, so Wanda sneaks off to investigate. The whole time, though, she's worried about Jamie.
