If you're looking to read a book that will move you, Behind the Beautiful Forevers ($16) is it. Written about an undercity of Mumbai, Pulitzer Prize winner Katherine Boo's book follows multiple families who are hoping for a better life as India starts to become more prosperous. We see struggles, small triumphs, and hope as the people in her book strive for "the full enjoy." It's a read that will open your eyes to other cultures and the very real fight for an improved quality of life.
