Second Look: Amy Lukavics’s THE WOMEN IN THE WALLS

As you may remember, I had mixed feelings about Amy Lukavic’s debut novel, DAUGHTERS UNTO DEVILS.  That, of course, didn’t stop me from wanting to read her second YA horror, THE WOMEN IN THE WALLS.

Amy Lukavics’s THE WOMEN IN THE WALLS
Harlequin Teen, 2016

What It’s About:

Think of Margaret and Lucy as a very secluded version of Blair Waldorf and Serena Van Der Woodsen.  Then, you’ll get their personalities and the weird dynamic of their friendship.

Now, moving on…

Lucy (our protagonist) lives in a huge estate (unnamed) with her father, Felix, aunt Penelope, and cousin Margaret.  And their cook.  (But, the novel starts off with Lucy finding the cook, Walter, dead by suicide.)

When Penelope walks into the woods surrounding the estate one afternoon and doesn’t return, Lucy fears the worst.  And as the search team stops looking for her, she becomes angry.  Her father refuses to bring in the authorities (i.e. police), but won’t tell Lucy why.  She’s left trying to figure out things on her own.

Then, Margaret, whom she was once very close to, starts hearing her mother’s (Penelope’s) voice in the walls, talking to her.  Margaret has always been jealous of Lucy’s relationship with Penelope, so she clings to this newfound closeness.  When she tries to tell Lucy, though, Lucy thinks she’s going crazy (and rightly so!)

The basic plot is this (with no spoilers!): Lucy is trying to figure out what happened to Margaret that made her go crazy; at the same time, she doesn’t understand why her father is so obsessed with The Club and he continues to let the Club rule his life, instead of paying attention to his own daughter.  Then, when Lucy finds out that her aunt may have been a witch, she’s more confused then ever.

And all she wants to do is escape…

TV News: Pretty Little Liars…ENDING?!

I don’t have much commentary on this, beside SHOCK AND AWE that it’s actually ending.  So instead, I’ll simply quote the original post from E! News:

It’s official: Pretty Little Liars is ending after its seventh season.

After much speculation over the future of the show, Troian Bellisario, Ashley Benson, Lucy Hale, Shay Mitchell, Sasha Pieterse and creator I. Marlene King announced the “bittersweet” news in a Facebook Live broadcast from the show’s set, where they’re filming the final batch of episodes.

Although, not to fret!  In true PLL fashion:

While King had hinted at the possibility that the show could continue in a different form after season seven, the group confirmed that the last ten episodes will mark the end of the series.

Alas, we still have a few months before we have to say good-bye.  The second half of season 7 of PLL won’t air until April 2017.

Until then.
