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.

Raphael is a 14 year old dumpsite boy. He lives a precarious life, making his living sifting through rubbish with his best friend, Gardo, with the faint hope that one day he might find something interesting. And then one unlucky-lucky day, as Raphael puts it, he does. He finds a wallet, containing 11 hundred pesos and more mysteriously, a map and a key. The only trouble is, one of the most powerful men in the country wants that wallet back and Raphael, Gardo and the third member of the team, Rat, find themselves on the run, unable to trust a soul. It’s a wonderful story from the same publishers who gave us The Curious Incident of the Dog in the Nightime and The Boy in the Striped Pyjamas so if you liked those novels, you’ll love this.

Review comments:


I enjoyed The Boy in the Striped Pajamas so maybe I'll give this one a go =)

It sounds like a great read for teenagers. A lovely plot with lots of possibilties. I am definitely hoping that these boys are clever enough to live to tell the tale, and make their fortunes. Who to trust is a pressing issue for teenagers.

This title and review sounds like it would be a good story. I am always on the lookout for good books for my 13 year old son to read so will deffinitely look this one up next time I am in Paperplus. cheers

I really appreciate young adult books being reviewed as it's a genre too often dismissed by most readers and there are some absolute gems out there so a big thank you for spreading the word!

I really enjoyed the review and want to read it so will be heading to the book store soon for a buy. Love the fact it is online so I can read reviews at my leisure (especially since I have three young kids) Thanks Kerre and Paper Plus

Kerre, I read the other 2 books in your review and I really enjoyed those, so I'll read this one too. Thanks for your reviews and the top picks, it makes it easier to decide "the next book I'm going to read"...
