In the novel Poverty’s Finest, by Chanell J. Wilson, Mac, Reesha, The Kid and Evie find themselves wrestling with the conditions of being poor. Each character has their inner strength tested as they journey through trials & tribulations. Their stories are told through various interactions with the same five-dollar bill.

Mac is now forced to sell Trees to make ends meet while he heals and looks for work. He desperately desires to have his family back.
Reesha represents Temporary Poverty- with Mac her estranged husband out of the picture because of his lifestyle choices of selling Trees; Reesha is forced to work two jobs to make ends meet for their ten-year old son Monty. Reesha feels stuck between a rock and a hard place through the juggling act of new found single motherhood and not always having enough. Frustration is her biggest annoyance.
The Kid represents Chronic Poverty- constantly chasing his next high. He has no real stability, income, or concept of self-awareness because he lives in a lucid dream state to escape the trauma from his past. The Kid is tall, lanky, malnourished, grimy and just billows and toils through life. He depends on Mac to sedate him with discounted Trees.
Evie represents Created Poverty- mother of four, her only real talent cannot be put on a resume. Evie has made it her life’s mission to be about “that life”. She views her children as souvenir’s from lovers past and let’s the child support checks be the gift that keeps on giving. Evie only dates rappers, ballers, high-rollers, and Sugar Daddy’s. Evie is chasing her next target Sugah Daddy Elwin, but she learns his style may be a little more than she bargained.
