Ahhh, the Black boogie man is alive and well in this purported look into the sex industry. The government that allows for women to stand in windows and offer themselves to strangers, is never taken to task. The bad white men are nonexistent in this novel. But, there are black men of evil a plenty. If you are going to write from the ladies perspective, surely they have thought about ALL men involved in the industry; and a world that has taught people to value the pursuit of material over all else. After reading and reflecting, out of the four women who made the choice to become sex workers, only one made even a slight bit of sense to have made that wretched decision. Althoug the writing is good, the lack of balance makers this a tough book to like. I think someone needs a good slap upside the head with a hammer, and trust me it's not these four women.
