Summary
Flint was already a troubled city in 2014 when the state of Michigan shifted the source of its water supply from Lake Huron to the Flint River. Citizens began complaining about the water that flowed from their taps, but officials insisted that the water was fine. Hanna-Attisha, a pediatrician at the city's public hospital, took state officials at their word. Then leaked documents from an environmental inspector, and the activism of a concerned mother, raised red flags about lead. This is the story of how a team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders proved that Flint's kids were exposed to lead-- and fought the government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world. -- adapted from dust jacket
Summary
A compelling firsthand account of the Flint water crisis traces how 100,000 Americans were poisoned by lead in their water supply with the government's awareness, tracing the pediatrician author's efforts to prove exposure in the face of brutal backlash
