New York Times Bestseller Hillbillelegy by J.D. Vance is an interesting look into the problems that vex rust belt cities in small town America. Written from his own experience growing up in Kentucky, then later Middletown, Ohio, Vance shares the unfortunate series of events that could have led him to a life of poverty and destruction. This book teaches us the importance of offering a new path for a brighter future to those stuck in the cycle of poverty, abuse, and addiction. A bit slow at times, but worth the read.
