really liked it

A sadly true depiction of the extreme poverty in Annawadi, a slum in Mumbai, India. Katherine Boo has related the story through the lives of families who are neighbors in the slum. Just by their proximity to each other, their lives are interconnected. This gives the author a unique perspective that gives us an insight into a world we are unlikely to encounter.
