Last time on the Summoning, we met the other inmates.
Last time on the Summoning, Chloe may be displaying the first stage of another schizophrenic symptom, paranoia. The EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEVIL nurse tells her clearly what the boundaries are and says to just be honest about things.
Because everyone seems confused (and it isn’t really that clear in the book either) here’s what’s going on as far as we know:
1)Chloe runs screaming through the halls into an empty classroom.
2) Teachers see Chloe, somehow instantly know she’s thinking of jumping out a window despite the window being closed.
3) Teachers tackle Chloe and wrestle her to the ground while she yells about a scary guy they can’t see.
4) ??? Some sort of minimal testing was done, presumably drug testing at least. Doctors don’t tell Chloe their findings but she claims they’re acting like it’s serious.
6) Chloe’s sent to a group home while drugged into incoherence, then given unknown meds on her first day.
Or, in short, nothing makes sense. Some of the pieces here connect up to others, but nothing in sequence and a couple don’t even work in isolation.
Last time on nonsensical depictions of mental illness treatment, Chloe was walked around her new home while out of her mind on drugs.
Last time on the Summoning, Chloe runs away from a ghost, gets tackled by a teacher, and then she’s knocked out and taken to a hospital.
Last time on the Summoning, Chloe pretends she didn’t just run into a ghost while getting her lunch back.
Last time on the Summoning, Chloe whines about how she’s short and hasn’t had her period and her hair isn’t good enough. Also, ghost boy.
Last time on the Summoning, scary ghosts in the basement.
So, The Summoning just barely managed to scrape ahead, and then currently we’re tied. The moral here is whining after I’ve already read half a book just means I have to read something else too. Although I probably will be doing Gemma Doyle’s schoolgirl adventures later, possibly next.
Well, let’s wrap this travesty up.
Last time on Mockingjay, Katniss murdered Coin.
Last time on Mockingjay, Katniss ran into Snow, who told us what I thought we already knew.
Last time on Mockingjay, for some reason yet to be fully explained, bombs. And Prim died.
There’s a poll currently to your right. You can still leave suggestions, and if there are good ones I’ll redo the poll Monday to include them. You can also just keep leaving suggestions to try to convince me. Which book is picked is going to be by a mix of how much you want me to vs how much I want me to.
For yesterday’s suggestions:
Last time on Mockingjay, we end on a (for this book) reasonable line about Katniss picking her boyfriend based on who she can’t live without.
Last time on Mockingjay, I’m rising to my feet when a woman throws open the door. She wears a bright turquoise silk robe embroidered with exotic birds. Her magenta hair’s fluffed up like a cloud and decorated with gilded butterflies. Grease from the half-eaten sausage she’s holding smears her lipstick. The expression on her face says she recognizes me. She opens her mouth to call for help.
Without hesitation, I shoot her through the heart.
