J.D. Vance
Hillbilly Elegy

I grew up in Appalachia so this book really struck a chord with me and I could see myself as I read it. J.D. Vance tells of his upbringing in Kentucky and Ohio and explains how the "Hillbilly mentality" (i.e., poor white Americans) rules the lives of so many people who are not able to break free from their roots. The American Dream is a goal seldom achieved by this segment of society. An excellent and informative read.
