MY OPINION:
Powerful!
There is one shot in particular, of a man relaxing in the shade with his bible on his chest. The face of this man spoke volumes to me, and I choked back tears.
Everyone in this book had a near effect on me, though different as well in their own ways. It was nice to read where the photographer/author was and the backstory behind the photos, but in actuality, some didn't need words. They hit you right away. 
Some fantastic photography of an ever-growing problem across the world, not just America. Though I am happy with the author/photographer bringing recognition to the problem growing in a place you just don't hear about. You hear about places like L.A and New York, not Phoenix. 
Definitely not a book for the faint-of-heart, it will tug at your heart and your conscience.

4/5

How Reading Helps Your Brain

The brain is one of the most complex biological structures that scientists and doctors have ever encountered. It is like a machine that runs non-stop that has the computing power to be able to make very complex decisions and experience unexplainable phenomena like emotions. The brain controls every other organ in the body so it is arguably the most important one. Unfortunately, probably due to its brilliance, it is a fairly vulnerable structure that can and does degrade over time.
