Read in January, 2008

I love the author's writing style. She goes from tongue-in-cheek to dead serious in a single paragraph. I love the whole idea of this social experiment and how well she describes her experience. We read it for another of my book clubs and there sure was a lot to talk about! I am definitely a better tipper after reading about how hard it was for her to do the waitressing job. I feel called to help build more affordable housing in my own community after reading about how hard it was for her to find decent housing making minimum wage.
