Chapter 57
Summary

Nathan calls Madeline to inform him about Abigail’s top secret project. Apparently, their daughter has designed a website, with his help, to auction her virginity (Moriarty 271). After asking for the website’s address and reviewing it. she becomes nauseated after seeing her daughter’s picture and the words “buy my virginity” (Moriarty 271). The thought of men looking at her daughter’s photo on their computer screens makes Madeline sick. She blames Nathan and Bonnie for allowing such a thing to happen while Abigail was under their care. 

Analysis

In the effort of creating awareness about human trafficking, sex slavery, and child marriage, Abigail has gone to the extent of auctioning her virginity. Madeline feels hurt that she was not there to stop it from happening, and blames Nathan for allowing their daughter to do such a thing (and demanding that he fix the problem he had helped create).
