In Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Andrea Elliott’s first book, Invisible Child: Poverty, Survival & Hope in an American City, a family is tested by poverty, housing and food insecurity, racism and addiction as they attempt to survive in New York City. The book centers on Dasani, a brilliant young girl—who, when we meet her, lives with her parents and six siblings in a Brooklyn shelter—and the challenges she encounters after she enrolls in a boarding school. Based on over a decade of reporting, Invisible Child is a heartbreaking and honest look at inequality and the power of a family’s love.
