Boot Latch Broken!

So I'm 17 and my first car is a 1999 Volvo S40xs 1.6 and everything has been running smoothly for the first month (Only done 42,000 miles in it's life).

However, a few days ago, I closed the boot and the boot latch has broken and will not allow me to open the boot at all. It appears to have recessed quite a bit and always remains locked.

I'm not really a car person and don't know how to deal with this issue, however I think I could just climb in through the back seats and push the latch back out.

TLDR: Boot latch is broken and I can't open the boot to fix it.

Any help would be appreciated!
