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. 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, the monster who abducts them and holds them captive in a dilapidated house in Queens. On the night they are finally rescued, throngs line the block gawking and claiming ignorance. How could lifetime resident Miss Metropolitan, advice columnist for the local weekly, have missed a horror story unfolding right across the street? And why were only two of the three girls-- now women-- found? The remaining victims are subjected to the further trauma of becoming symbols as they continuously adapt to their present and their unrelenting past.
