An Best Book of July 2018 Flint, Michigan, has become a byword for municipal failure When the government switched the city s water source, residents started to complain that the water tasted strange and they were growing ill After repeated strong statements from the city and state claiming the water was just fine, interspersed with perplexing boil water alerts, residents finally took large scale water testing into their own hands, and a local hospital analyzed its patient data to prove that residents were suffering levels of lead poisoning at an unheard of scale Detroit journalist Anna Clark deftly sets the stage for Flint s man made disaster the big drop in population that affected the pipe infrastructure, Flint s financial emergencies, and the long history of sidelining poor and African
