During the hottest summer on record, the children of a small Italian hamletplay in the surrounding fields. While completing a dare set by the others, oneof the boys, Michele Amitrano, discovers something so shocking that he feelsforced to keep it a secret from his friends.

Michele is repulsed by what he has discovered and yet is unable to resistunearthing more. But what upsets him most, is finding out to what extent theadults know.

A terrifying situation is revealed through the eyes of this nine year old,with a mixture of his burgeoning understanding of morality, his imagination andhis naivety about the adult world.

The heat and the isolation of the setting create an stiflingatmosphere that mirrors the boy’s fear and adult’s increasing desperation.

Absolutely gripping, this powerful and beautifully writtenstory is reminiscent of Stephan King’s Stand By Me, and Harper Lee’sTo Kill a Mockingbird.

'A deft masterpiece with never a false note' - Guardian

From the Inside Flap:

?Stop all this talk about monsters, Michele. Monsters don?t exist. It?s men you should be afraid of, not monsters.?

A sweltering heat wave hits a tiny village in Southern Italy, sending the adults to seek shelter, while their children bicycle freely throughout the countryside, playing games and getting into trouble. On a dare, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano enters an old, abandoned farmhouse, where he stumbles upon a secret so terrible that he can?t tell anybody. As the truth emerges, Michele learns that the horror in the creepy old house is closer to home than he ever imagined.

A widely acclaimed international bestseller, I?m Not Scared is a spine-tingling novel that combines a coming of age narrative with a satisfying, enthralling story of suspense.
