I'm Not Scared
Text Publishing Company, 3 feb 2003 - 224 pagine
Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize, I'm Not Scared is a devastatingly authentic portrayal of childhood.
One relentless summer, while the adults shelter indoors, six children explore the scorched wheatfields that surround their tiny community in the Italian countryside. But when the gang chances on a tumbledown farmhouse, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano makes a discovery so momentous he dare not tell anyone about it and he must summon all of his imaginative resources to deal with his terrible secret.
This is an enthralling and terrifying story about friendship and betrayal, guilt and innocence, which drives us inexorably to its tragic climax.
'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly
