The writing style was more like fiction than non, and I found it confusing that the author removed herself completely from the book. I would have liked to hear more about what her interactions with the people in Annawadi were like and how she motivated them to tell her their stories. The world she describes is so motivated by money and survival, that it's hard to imagine them sharing freely with an outsider.
