If you guess correctly, your name will go in a drawing for prizes and the winners will be announced on the blog Monday, October 8. Prizes include library totes, gift certificates to the Friends Bookstore, a Friends gift membership, and a book bag or T-shirt of your choice from the Friends Bookstore. Good luck!

Nickel and Dimed, Barbara Ehrenreich goes undercover as a minimum wage earner to show how difficult it is for the working poor in America. She stops off in a number of cities, checks in at the cheapest lodgings, and gets work as a waitress, house cleaner, maid, home health aide, and Wal-Mart clerk.
Nickled and Dimed was removed from New Hampshire's Bedford School District's required Personal Finance course after two parents complained about the profanity, anti-Christian references, and negative portrayal of capitalism.
