Thomas, Joyce Carol
New York : Scholastic, 1988.
Meggie Alexander is 15. She's loosing her friends, not to drugs or drinking or fast cars, they're disappearing while they jog. She and her buddies decide to investigate despite their parents' curfew. They get in over their heads. The plot isn't as important as the descriptions of the characters' feelings and motivations. This is a poetic look at fear.
SUBJECTS:     African Americans -- Fiction.
              Horror stories.
