Bookvie: Trash - out January 30, 2015 (UK)

Who's in it:
Rooney Mara, Martin Sheen, Wagner Moura

What's it all about (book blurb from Goodreads):
In an unnamed Third World country, in the not-so-distant future, three “dumpsite boys” make a living picking through the mountains of garbage on the outskirts of a large city. 

One unlucky-lucky day, Raphael finds something very special and very mysterious. So mysterious that he decides to keep it, even when the city police offer a handsome reward for its return. That decision brings with it terrifying consequences, and soon the dumpsite boys must use all of their cunning and courage to stay ahead of their pursuers. It’s up to Raphael, Gardo, and Rat—boys who have no education, no parents, no homes, and no money—to solve the mystery and right a terrible wrong.

Andy Mulligan has written a powerful story about unthinkable poverty—and the kind of hope and determination that can transcend it. With twists and turns, unrelenting action, and deep, raw emotion, Trash is a heart-pounding, breath-holding novel.

  1. I am actually reading the book of this one now because I want to see the movie and we are reading it in class. I am sorry to say that I really don't like the book and would have DNFed it if we weren't reading it in school. I can only hope that the movie will be better.
