General Fiction

G/A Mulligan, Andy. Trash. David Fickling Books, 2010. 232p. 978-0-385-75214-5. 16.99.

Three boys who live in Behala, the city dump, spend their days sorting through trash for items to resell. One day they find a bag with a wallet, map and key inside. The police are desperately looking for the bag and the boys want to figure out why. It leads them on a wild chase through the city, where they discover the importance of their find. The book discusses some tough topics about society including friendship, education, poverty and corruption. Although not technically a dystopian novel, fans of that genre or realistic adventure seekers will enjoy. Loren Spector, LAPL, Felipe de Neve
