"More than forty-five million Americans attempt to survive under the poverty line, day by day. Nearly 60,000 people sleep in New York City-run shelters every night--forty percent of them children. This Is All I Got makes this issue deeply personal, vividly depicting one woman's hope and despair and her steadfast determination to improve her situation, despite the myriad setbacks she encounters. Camila is a twenty-two-year-old new mother. She has no family to rely on, no partner, and no home. Despite her intelligence and determination, the odds are firmly stacked against her. Award-winning journalist Lauren Sandler tells the story of a year in Camila's life--from the birth of her son to his first birthday--as she navigates the labyrinth of poverty and homelessness in America. As Camila attempts to secure a college education and a safe place to raise her son, she copes with dashed dreams, failed relationships, and miles of red tape with grit, grace, and resilience. This Is All I Got is a dramatic story of survival and powerful indictment of a broken system, but it is also a revealing and candid depiction of the relationship between an embedded reporter and her subject and the tricky boundaries to navigate when it's impossible to remain a dispassionate observer"--… (lisätietoja)

This is not only a story depicting Camilla’s journey, but a harsh critique on the government assistant policies put in place. More than once information wasn’t sent to Camilla and a program she depended on was thus revoked without her knowledge, she had to shuffle from office to office, she would have to reapply & wait for the program to kick in, she had to wait for hours at each place, etc. It was dizzying and maddening to me as a reader, and I can only imagine how it felt for a new mother. Camilla was attending school during this time as well and often was late or had to miss classes & exams.⁣
This book is one that should be read by everyone. It’s eye opening, maddening, and heart breaking. It makes me want to pay better attention to the poverty issues here and what more I can do for my community. ( )

Okay, I've got no idea how I truly feel about this book. I won it a while ago in a GR Giveaway and finally got the chance to read it. I found it entertaining. I enjoy Sandler's writing. But upon finishing it, I felt a bit icky. I was a single mother, barely getting by, at the age of 19. I received public assistance to cover daycare costs while I worked and attended school. I even found myself in the situation of making "too much" and losing childcare assistance, which meant I literally couldn't afford to work. So I saw a lot of my past self in these pages. I identified with Camilla and it's part of what pulled me into her story.

What felt wrong to me though, is that there is no story without Camila, but Camilla gained nothing by letting her story be told. It just feels like she was used and my heart hurts for her.

So yeah, just not sure about this one. ( )
