During Sarah Smarsh's turbulent upbringing in Kansas in the 1980s and 1990s, she enjoyed the freedom of a country childhood but observed the painful challenges of the poverty around her: untreated medical conditions for lack of insurance or consistent care, unsafe job conditions, abusive relationships, and limited resources and information that would provide for the upward mobility that is the American Dream. By telling the story of her life and the lives of the people she loves with clarity but without judgment, Smarsh's National Book Award finalist challenges us to look more closely at the class divide in our country.
