For Caitlin Shetterly and Dan Davis, life was full of promise. They were young, college-educated and newly married. When the economy in their hometown of Maine started to turn south, they decided to follow a dream they had to move west. So in 2008, they moved to Los Angeles. And at first life was good. But then they got hit by a welcome but unexpected pregnancy that made Caitlin very sick, and the economy started to unravel…everywhere. Caitlin Shetterly’s memoir Made for You and Me is about how a nice middle-class couple with everything going for them got dragged down by the recession and by joblessness. But its also about how together, they are climbing back on top and realizing an American Dream that’s a whole lot different from what they had originally thought.
