Trash by Andy Mulligan.
The Guardian newspaper review says:
The story grabbed me from page one when one of the main characters, Raphael, introduces himself and his situation in very frank language, and you realise that this book is going to be about a world of which you (fortunately) have no previous knowledge. Raphael and his friends live on a huge dump site, in a fictional city which is probably supposed to be in Latin America. Their lives consist of sifting through the rubbish, day after day, trying to find anything valuable that they can sell. Early in the book the boys discover a small leather bag containing a wallet, a folded up map and a key. This discovery leads to a huge adventure that changes their lives.
During the Spring Term we are studying 'Wonder' by R.J. Palacio.
'Wonder' tells the inspiring and heartwarming story of August Pullman. Born with facial differences that, up until now, have prevented him from going to a mainstream school, Auggie becomes the most unlikely of heroes when he enters the local fifth grade. As his family, his new classmates, and the larger community all struggle to find their compassion and acceptance, Auggie's extraordinary journey will unite them all and prove you can't blend in when you were born to stand out.
