This book is filled with unexpected discoveries and twist. Many names used in this book left me in a confused and annoyed state. But when I realised that all these names belong to authors who the best of their times , it impressed me. Land fill lived his whole life as a scavenger and Babagoo has always been there to Gaurd him . Land fill longs to venture outside the walls and to discover things beyond Hinderland.

The book is about a boy called Landfill who's lived his whole life as a scavenger. He was found as a baby and raised by an old man, Babagoo. The story follows Landfill as he makes a friend with an 'outsider'. Landfill is very unsure of this friendship as he has never experienced anything like it. Wow! What a massive emotional rollercoaster ride of a book. I think I pretty much cried for the last 2 chapters of the book. I think the last 4 chapters changed everything for me. There are so many twists and turns, and each one is brilliant. This is ridiculously well written book and I loved reading every minute of it. I found myself frustrated, sad, angry, happy and sometimes all within a short space of time. I think the character I most relate to is Dawn because she constantly wants to help Landfill, she's very caring and adventurous. It completely peaked my curiosity and I couldn't put it down. I'd reread it in a heart beat but I just need a minute to process everything before I dive back in! That ending, was beautiful and sad. The blurb does not do this book justice.
