520 "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"--
