What the Eyes Don't See: A Story of Crisis, Resistance, and Hope in an American City by Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha
What the Eyes Don’t See is the inspiring story of how Iraqi-American Dr. Mona Hanna-Attisha -- 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.
