This sounds like a really good book on the algorithmic discrimination topic, boyd say it’s on par with Ehrenreich’s “Nickel and Dimed” or Desmond’s “Evicted”.

“Eubanks goes deep with the people and families who are targets of these systems, telling their stories and experiences in rich detail. Further, drawing on interviews with social services clients and service providers alongside the information provided by technology vendors and government officials, Eubanks offers a clear portrait of just how algorithmic systems actually play out on the ground, despite all of the hope that goes into their implementation.”
