Overview
In the heart of the world's wealthiest nation, one hundred thousand people were poisoned by their water supply for two years--with the knowing complicity of their government. Despite complaints from residents that something was terribly wrong, officials insisted that the water was just fine. Even with leaked inspection documents and mounting circumstantial evidence of waterborne neurotoxins--whose irreversible effects fall most heavily on children--Flint, Michigan pediatrician Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha knew that the only thing that could stop the lead poisoning was undeniable proof--and that to get it, she'd have to enter the fight of her life.

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 battled 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 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.
