Trash, by Andy Mulligan, is a story about three boys. Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days going through mountains of trash, and sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world is turned around. A small leather bag falls into his hands. It's a bag of clues. It's a bag that will change everything. Soon Raphael and his friends Gardo and Rat are running for their lives. Wanted by the police, it takes all their quick-thinking to stay ahead. They uncover a dead man's mission to put right a terrible wrong. The three boys will do anything, even break the law, to get to the truth. The first thing they do to get to the truth is they lie to the officers about finding the bag. On page #15 “What did you find?” said the boss “I didn’t find a bag sir” I said “What did you find?” “I found a…shoe.” He said he found a shoe so they could further investigate into it and they also didn’t want to get into trouble for having it. They hid the bag at rats because they think no one would look there. The next thing the boys do to get to the truth is they had Olivia take Gardo to the prison because he -Gardo- said Gabriel was his grandfather. On page # 87 Gardo “We need you to go with me, sister. Please?” “Me?” They all nodded. “You want me to go and see your grandfather?” Olivia said. Gardo nodded “How?” Olivia said.
