it was ok

DUDE. Ridiculous. The book barely reads as true to begin with, and then when I went online there were pages and pages debunking her stories. I suppose the argument is that Jennifer is reporting the world of these underground homeless as it was told to her, making her job simply to report rather than evaluate. But if that's the device at use here, it doesn't work at all.

It's disappointing, because the author clearly spent some serious time in the company of the homeless and made incredible connections.
