The Host Chapter 55 Summary

How It All Goes Down


  • Jodi, or at least the soul inside her head, calls herself Sunny now. She's scared to be removed from Jodi. For some strange reason, she really likes Kyle (she's the only one) and doesn't want to leave him, or this planet, behind. She's quite attached to him, you might say.
  • But Kyle still wants Jodi back, so tough nuggets, Sunshine, you're going back into space.
  • They argue about this for a while. Sunny wants to stay. Sunny has to go. Yadda yadda yadda.
  • Finally, Wanda tells her, "I have to give my body back, too" (55.166).
  • Unbeknownst to Wanda, she says this just as Ian comes into earshot. Oops. The cat's outta the bag now.
