“Sandler’s such a keen observer, her writing so clear-eyed … a testament to the bigness of the small story, to the power of intimate narratives to speak to something much larger” — From the New York Times Book Review
chronicles a life caught up in America’s failed safety net. The book tells the story of Camila, who is twenty-two years old and a 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. Sandler chronicles 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 New York City. In her attempts to secure a safe place to raise her son and find a measure of freedom in her life, Camila copes with dashed dreams, failed relationships, the desolation of abandonment, and miles of red tape with grit, humor, and uncanny resilience.
