The Garbage King / Elizabeth Laird

Availability: Out of stock
[Paperback]
£5.99

Inspired by the true story of an African childhood lived on the edge of destitution, award-winning Elizabeth Laird’s new novel takes readers on an unforgettable emotional journey. When Mamo’s mother dies, he is abandoned in the shanties of Addis Ababa. Stolen by a child-trafficker and sold to a farmer, he is cruelly treated. Escaping back to the city, he meets another, very different runaway. Dani is rich, educated – and fleeing his tyrannical father. Together they join a gang of homeless street boys who survive only by mutual bonds of trust and total dependence on each other.
