The Hard Bounce
At St. Gabriel's Home for Boys, Boo picked up a few key survival skills, a wee bit of an anger management problem, and his best friend for life, Junior. Boo and Junior have a combined weight of 470 pounds (mostly Boo's), about ten grand in tattoos (mostly Junior's), and provide security for a Boston nightclub where the bartender doles out hugs and scoldings for her favorite misfits, and the night porter expects them to watch their language. At last Boo has found a family. But when Boo and Junior are hired to find a well-to-do runaway, and evidence suggests that the girl is being sexually exploited, Boo's desire for justice begins to push his surrogate family's loyalty to the breaking point.
