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 that he dare not tell a soul.
It is a secret that will force Michele to question everything and everyone around him, and will bring his innocent world toppling down.
An unputdownable thriller, I'm Not Scared has become a contemporary classic in Italian literature, read and celebrated the world over.
