A NovelBook - 2017
Manjunath Kumar is fourteen and living in a slum in Mumbai. He knows he is good at cricket--if not as good as his older brother Radha. But there are many other things about himself and the world that he doesn't know. Sometimes it even seems as though everyone has a clear idea of who Manju should be, except Manju himself. And when Manju meets Radha's great rival, a mysterious Muslim boy privileged and confident in all the ways Manju is not, he is forced to come to terms with who he really is. -- adapted from book jacket.

As with his Booker Prize-winning The White Tiger, Adiga shows us caste-ridden contemporary India but focuses on the heavy burdens parents can place on children and the compelling complexity of sibling relationships.
