    Annawadi is a makeshift settlement in the shadow of luxury hotels near the Mumbai airport, and as India starts to prosper, Annawadians are electric with hope. Abdul, a reflective and enterprising Muslim teenager, sees “a fortune beyond counting” in the recyclable garbage that richer people throw away. Asha, a woman of formidable wit and deep scars from a childhood in rural poverty, has identified an alternate route to the middle class: political corruption.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Behind the Beautiful Forevers?

    I loved this book and when I listened to the author's summary of her experience writing the story I was astonished. Her words away from the story have me returning to contemplate situations that were presented to each character and the living situation they had to endure.
