Today I have a special treat for you. Here’s a little inside look at Lisa and Laura and their own, most famous W.A.R…
It is no secret that as sisters, we waged many wars growing up. We used to place large, plastic spiders on our younger sister Stacey’s cheek while she slept. We’d snap a photo and surprise her after developing the film. “Oh my gosh! Look what was on your cheek!” Niiiice. There were torn shirts in high school hallways, diary pages read aloud to the neighborhood, bras and underwear thrown out second story windows. It was all sorts of fun.
But the most famous sister-wars were the ones where we banded together. In the aftermath, of course. Most memorable was when Lisa and I were fighting over one very large, very heavy cordless phone. Think the length of your forearm, the weight of a small baby, with a long, dangerous antenna that pulled from the top. Well, the phone was thrown at my head and most definitely left a mark. Both on me and the phone. It broke. No dial tone, no charge, no chance of resuscitation. We knew immediately that we were screwed. Cordless phones were expensive! They didn’t grow on trees! We were careless and insensitive and ungrateful.
So instead of playing dumb, lying or being honest, we found the nearest shoe box, said goodby and headed out to the railroad tracks that ran through our neighborhood. And we buried the phone in shallow grave. Our mom would page the phone with a wrinkled forehead, frustrated that no matter how hard we cleaned and searched, we could not unearth the stupid thing. That is, unless you headed out to the railroad tracks with a shovel.
This is W.A.R. begins with a victim who can no longer speak for herself, and whose murder blossoms into a call-to-arms. Enter four very different girls, four very different motives to avenge Willa Ames-Rowan, and only one rule to start: Destroy James Gregory and his family at any cost. Willa’s initials spell the secret rallying cry that spurs the foursome to pool their considerable resources and deliver their particular brand of vigilante justice. Innocence is lost, battles are won—and the pursuit of the truth ultimately threatens to destroy them all.
