It was a bitterly cold day when Arthur T. Owens grabbed a brick and hurled it at the trash picker. Arthur had his reasons, and the brick hit the Junk Man in the arm, not the head. But none of that matters to the judge, he is ready to send Arthur to juvie for the foreseeable future. Amazingly, it's the Junk Man himself who offers an alternative: 120 hours of community service; working for him. Arthur is given a rickety shopping cart and a list of the Seven Most Important Things: glass bottles, foil, card board, pieces of wood, light bulbs, coffee cans, and mirrors. He can't believe it, is he really supposed to rummage through people's trash? But it isn't long before Arthur realizes there's more to the Junk Man than meets the eye, and the 'trash' he's collecting is being transformed into something more precious than anyone could imagine.

I did not realize until at least a quarter of the way through that James Hampton, the secondary main character, is a real person. After I had that information, I enjoyed the book even more. The publisher has done a disservice to the reader by not even mentioning that information on the back-cover copy.
