I'm Not Scared

Copertina anteriore
Text Publishing Company, 3 feb 2003 - 224 pagine

One relentless summer, six children explore the scorched wheatfields that surround their tiny community in the Italian countryside, while the adults shelter indoors. 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.

I’m Not Scared is a devastatingly authentic portrayal of childhood, and Michele 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.
