Ever wondered about what it would be like to work on a dumpsite ? What treasures you would find amongst the trash as the saying goes "One person's junk is another man's treasures".?

Review : Trash - Andy Mulligan - October 2010

Hi , My name is Raphael Fernandez and me and my two friends Gardo and Rat live on a pile of trash and it is our job every single day to sift through the rubbish. In an unnamed Third World country, in the not-so-distant future, three “dumpsite boys” make a living picking through the mountains of garbage on the outskirts of a large city. One unlucky but lucky day considering which way you looked at it , Raphael finds something very special and very mysterious. So mysterious that he decides to keep it, even when the city police offer a handsome reward for its return. That decision brings with it terrifying consequences, and soon the dumpsite boys must use all of their cunning and courage to stay ahead of their pursuers. It’s up to Raphael, Gardo, and Rat—boys who have no education, no parents, no homes, and no money—to solve the mystery and right a terrible wrong.Andy Mulligan has written a powerful story about unthinkable poverty—and the kind of hope and determination that can transcend it. With twists and turns, unrelenting action, and deep, raw emotion, Trash is a heart-pounding, breath-holding novel.
