Awesome 'Trash' Giveaway!

Hi everyone - I'm sorry I haven't posted for a couple of days but I had a bit of virus hassle and had to do a big system restore on my laptop which has held me up a bit! All is well though and I'm here today to announce a very exciting giveaway for Trash by Andy Mulligan.

If you haven't heard about Trash yet then check out the synopsis below or click here to visit the Goodreads page for it. I was lucky enough to receive an ARC of this wonderful book earlier in the year and I absolutely fell in love with it and I hope you'll love it too so I'm teaming up with the lovely ladies at Random House to give away five copies - four to UK readers and one international copy.

I'm also super, SUPER excited to enough that I'll be hosting the blog tour for Trash from September 20th-24th. Each day I'll be putting up a post written by Andy dedicated to the book so please stop by and check it out - it's going to be fab!

Trash really isn't like any other book I've read before and even though I read it months ago the entire story is still so vivid in my mind. It's an absolute rollercoaster read and I promise you'll love it just as much as I do.

Synopsis (from Goodreads): Raphael is a dumpsite boy. He spends his days wading through mountains of steaming trash, sifting it, sorting it, breathing it, sleeping next to it. Then one unlucky-lucky day, Raphael's world turns upside down. A small leather bag falls into his hands.

It's a bag of clues. It's a bag of hope. 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, fast-talking to stay ahead. As the net tightens, they uncover a dead man's mission to put right a terrible wrong. And now it's three street-boys against the world...
