The White Tiger by Aravind Adiga

Synopsis: A young man in India breaks out of his caste the hard way to become an “entrepreneur.”

What Makes It: The voice is sharp and memorable. Think Holden Caulfield without the depression and a lot more huzpah. This debut novel won the Man Booker Prize, if that does anything for you. And the story is really intriguing…you find out more about what India is like, and also how the pitfalls of its democracy mirror our own in the States.
