Details about Girl in the Walls by A.J. Gnuse
Girl in the Walls by A.J. Gnuse – The cat, blinking in the afternoon light, padded away down the long length of the gravel driveway. Her paws found the small, flat spaces between the rocks, and the girl, from her vantage point at the guest room window, could hear nothing – it was like a silent film she was lucky enough to look out the window to catch. But she thought about how, even if she were out there, lying on her back on the lawn with her eyes closed, beside the lilies the boys’ mother, Mrs Laura, had planted along the edge of the driveway, she still wouldn’t hear any sound that would cue her that the cat was passing just an arm’s reach away. She loved that.
