Every year our daughter’s secondary school encourages the school family (pupils and their fami lies) to read the same book. This year’s was ‘Trash’, about the exploits of three boys scrapping out a living on a rubbish heap in a place called Behala.
This was a delightful, feel good novel, which I read today over couple of Tube trips. It’s story resonated with the experiences I have of people living a similar life in Sierra Leone in West Africa. It is well written wih a warm and playful style. Recommended!
