    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.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No. As someone who has spent a lot of time in India, I wanted to learn what lay behind the street beggars and scrap sorters I see everywhere. You learn a lot but there is never any high point or climax. It's just depressing note after note. On a 4 hour car ride, the book was just depressing and it went on and on about how terrible this life is.
