Big Little Lies Chapter 19

By Liane Moriarty

Chapter 19

  • Madeline, Ed, Jane, and Jane's parents are all going to Blue Blues for some coffee. (And chocolate cake—Madeline's PMS is hitting her pretty hard.) 
  • As they near the beachside café, Jane's mom wants to get a little alone time with Madeline. It's clear she wants to have a heart-to-heart chat. 
  • They send everyone else into the café to order. 
  • Jane's mom is worried about Jane. Jane seemed traumatized, says her mom: she's lost too much weight, she's silent and edgy, and she doesn't tell her mother anything. 
  • Jane's mom thinks back to when Jane was pregnant with Ziggy. Jane had just broken up with her long-term boyfriend, and then gotten pregnant having a one-night stand… 
  • And then she was never the same again. 
  • Don't worry, Madeline tells Jane's mom. Jane is in good hands now—Madeline will be watching out for her.
