The book Trash is about two young boys named Raphael and Raccordo, who live in a dumpsite.They go rummaging around looking for things they may sell. They both find a mysterious leather bag with wads of Pesos. They also have found a small note. The next day the police arrive telling the neighborhood that they will pay anyone lots of money for that bag. The boys are confused. They take many adventures to find what’s in the bag that is so special. They take many twists and turns while taking these adventures.
I liked this book because it was a thriller and it would leave me confused and twisted. I recommend this book to anyone who likes to read mysteries. If you liked Ripplestrop, you’ll like Trash!

    Sounds like a great book! Were you able to predict what was in the bag? Did the word on the bag give any helpful clues?
