Serves 4 Jack Iles Trash by Andy Mulligan Three young boys live on a dumpsite. They spend the daylight hours sifting through the rubbish and filth, trying to find something they can salvage to buy food for their families. One day Raphael makes a discovery he has only previously dreamed about: a wallet. He tells his two friends, but no-one else, even when the police are in pursuit. The wallet holds much more than wealth; there is a secret to be unlocked. It is up to the three boys to unravel the mystery – and deal with the consequences. Of course the boys hope that they will find enough wealth to escape poverty and move their families away from the dumpsite to new home on an island, and earn a living by fishing. But they also want to right a terrible wrong, exerted at the highest level of government. And their lives are very much threatened by the enormity of what they will expose. This is a stunning book, hard-hitting and fast-paced. Written by a man who spent some years teaching in Manila and who visited children living on dumpsites just like this one, it has a powerful and poignant message, while also presenting a gripping thriller which is ultimately full of hope and promise. For readers from age 11, this book has also been adapted into a BAFTA-nominated film, directed by Steven Daldry and written by Richard Curtis. Available from Browsers Bookshop, Woodbridge.
