This book was awesome. I waited several months to get this book from the library on my Kindle and it was worth every second. This book is set at a garbage dump in Cambodia. The people that live at the dump sort through garbage and sell what they can find. Sing Li and her husband Ki live there with their sick child. Their rent collector, Sopeap Sin, is harsh and they cannot afford both their rent and paying for medical care. This book is the development of their relationship on and off the dump and their quest to find good care for their son. In the book, two unlikely friends help each other on deeper levels than can ever be thought. This book was beautifully written and holds a place in my heart.
