One relentlessly hot summer, six children explore the scorched wheat-fields that enclose their tiny Italian village. When the gang find a dilapidated farmhouse, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano makes a discovery so momentous he dare not tell a soul. It is a secret that will force Michele to question everything and everyone around him.
An unputdownable thriller, I’m Not Scared is also a devastatingly authentic portrayal of childhood and the tension when it must join the adult world.
So good, my friends & I loved it. I have 3 children & it has knocked my time to read. I read it in 2 days flat (It’s a nice manageable size). Wonderful
