Summary
Fern seeks refuge from her mother's pill popping and boyfriends via Soul Train; Gwin finds salvation in the music of Prince, much to her congregation's dismay; and Jesenia, miles ahead of her classmates at her gifted and talented high school, is a brainy and precocious enigma. None of this matters to Boss Man, who abducts them and holds them captive in a dilapidated house in Queens. Only two of the "victim-girls" are found when they are rescued. On that night, throngs line the block, gawking and claiming ignorance. Among them is lifelong resident Miss Metropolitan, advice columnist for the local weekly; but how could anyone who fancies herself a "newspaperwoman" have missed a horror story unfolding in her own neighborhood?
