Trash may be the title of this book, but it certainly isn't! This book takes on you on the exhilarating journey of three boys: Raphael, Gardo and Rat. These friends have spent their whole lives sifting through the rubbish dumps, and then one day they discover something which contains an extraordinary secret. But this secret has deadly consequences for whoever is involved. With danger lurking around every corner, the boys have to work together to create a cunning plan to solve the mystery, before someone else does. This book was absolutely brilliant! It was exciting, suspense filled, but at the same time very humbling, and was cleverly written through the narrative of all the characters involved. I was unable to put it down, for fear of yet another twist in the plot.
