Product description

Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days knee-deep in steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it. Then one day, a small leather bag falls into Raphael’s hands – a bag of clues. A bag of hope. A bag that will change his world… and leave him running for his life. Soon Raphael and his friends, Gardo and Rat, are wanted by the police, being hunted without mercy. As they are chased from filthy gutters to wealthy avenues, they uncover a dead man’s mission to put right a terrible wrong. But they can’t run forever. They need a miracle… Three street boys take on the world in this fast-paced and intensely moving story.

“Harrowing, exhilarating, humbling and quite brilliant.” The Bookseller

“One of the most exciting and original novels of the year.” Daily Mail
