I really wanted to love this book. It started off great, grabbed my attention and told the story of various people of retirement age that due to finances (or lack thereof) ended up living in vans/cars/pull behind trailers and driving around the country for seasonal work to barely make ends meet. It was shocking and catchy and frankly made me so mad that as a country we didn’t better care for our citizens. Then, I just felt like it rambled and drug on. Still a great highlight of an untold segment of society - I just think it could have been much shorter.
