This one was gripping from the start. The main character was trustworthy, considerate. I liked him at the helm. The secondary characters had legs too. I'm Not Scared about finding out dark truths about family and the darkness that humans are capable of. Combine the two and there's this coming-of-age story. It's a translated book and it was well done because it read seamlessly, as if it had been originally written in English.
It's not a long book so I read it fast and it was disappointing to have the experience come to an end. I searched for a sequel but there isn't one, which is probably for best. I did find that the book was made into a movie (2004) but the library doesn't have it. BOO. I will submit a request to SPL to order a copy.
I personally loved this book! so interesting and sad. a book about torture to a youth and how another youth becomes friends with him, when he has greater connections to the child then he thought! The translation seemed a little off though but was still amazing.
A good story about a boy's loss of innocence in rural Italy. This novella is based on a true story.
