About this book
This is a book to read in one go, with heart pounding and breath held until its satisfying conclusion. It is the story of three street boys who take on the world, with the feel-good factor of "Slum Dog Millionaire" and Frank Cottrell Boyce's "Millions". Like "The Boy In The Striped Pyjamas" and "The Curious Incident Of The Dog In The Night-Time" it has the potential to transcend reading ages and leap literary fences. 'Harrowing, exhilarating, humbling and quite brilliant' "Bookseller"
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.
