Summary
Inspired by the true story of an African childhood lived on the edge of destitution, award-winning Elizabeth Lairds The Garbage King takes readers on an unforgettable emotional journey. When Mamos 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
