    What if you can't afford nine-dollar tomatoes? That was the question award-winning journalist Tracie McMillan couldn't escape as she watched the debate about America's meals unfold, one that urges us to pay food's true cost-which is to say, pay more. So in 2009 McMillan embarked on a groundbreaking undercover journey to see what it takes to eat well in America. For nearly a year, she worked, ate, and lived alongside the working poor to examine how Americans eat when price matters.

    Story

    I am familiar with how it can be disturbing to go behind the kitchen of modern food processing in America, so I was a bit hesitant about this book, not wanting to hear another horror account. Yet I was pleasantly surprised. While disturbing realities are revealed, they are presented in such a way that I did not have nightmares. Rather, this is a journey of beautiful storytelling of one journalist's quest to answer the question of why healthy food is so hard to get and how it got to be that way in America.

    The narrator does a splendid job of communicating the intonation, the inflection, and the story the author wanted to share in a way that makes her book an easy-listen.
