About this book
An exciting and moving novel about street boys in a third world country who spend their lives sifting through a rubbish dump, until one of them finds a lucky bag. Filled with the feel-good atmosphere of "Slumdog Millionaire" and "Millions". Combines a thriller with an emotional plotline. Ages: 12+.
Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. It's a bag that will change everything.
