April - Behind The Beautiful Forevers and A Change of Books for May
If you didn't read it, if you can find a copy through the library, I do highly recommend that you give this one a shot. There is so much here to think about beyond the poverty. For example, compared to what they might have if they lived in the countryside or a higher economic class, the women have a surprising amount of freedom and power within their neighborhood.
