|What the Eyes Don’t See is the inspiring story of how Dr. Mona, accompanied by an idiosyncratic team of researchers, parents, friends, and community leaders, proved that Flint’s kids were exposed to lead and then fought her own government and a brutal backlash to expose that truth to the world.
Paced like a scientiﬁc thriller, this book shows how misguided austerity policies, the withdrawal of democratic government, and callous bureaucratic indifference placed an entire city at risk. And at the center of the story is Dr. Mona herself —an immigrant, doctor, scientist, and mother whose family’s activist roots inspired her pursuit of justice.
What the Eyes Don’t See is a riveting, beautifully rendered account of a shameful disaster that became a tale of hope, the story of a city on the ropes that came together to ﬁght for justice, self-determination, and the right to build a better world for their—and all of our—children.
