Holter Graham's narration reflects the frustration expressed by economist Jeff Madrick in this thorough examination of the poverty that exists among 13 million of America's children. Graham demonstrates a gift for emphasis in each sentence as Madrick demonstrates how the U.S. has amplified child poverty through attitudes embedded in government policies--for example, classism, racism, and sexism. These drastically diminish social services, disproportionately hurting children. In the final chapters, as Madrick offers solutions, Graham's warmer tone captures the genuine care the author has for the children whose quality of life he believes can be improved by the programs he champions.
