If her parents had never divorced, Laura wouldn't be living in the shadow of Bruce, her mom's unpredictable boyfriend. Her mom wouldn't say things like "Be groovy," and Laura wouldn't panic every weekend when her stoned brother threatens to lose her en route to Dad's Manhattan apartment. If her parents were still together, they'd all live in the city and Laura would know her way around. She'd be an urban kid, hopping subways, unafraid.

Jonas, meanwhile, thinks nonstop about the pretty hippie girl he glimpsed that day in the subway, trying to comprehend how she vanished, but mostly wondering whether he will ever see her again in a city of millions
