    A widely acclaimed international best seller, I'm Not Scared combines a coming-of-age narrative with a satisfying and spine-tingling story of suspense. 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. When the gang find a dilapidated farmhouse, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano makes a discovery so momentous he dare not tell a soul.

    Estate 1978, in una piccola frazione del Meridione, spersa tra le immense distese di grano nella campagna arsa dal sole, Michele Amitrano ha 9 anni e un grande segreto da custodire: nei pressi di una casa abbandonata ha scoperto un buco nel terreno dove è tenuto prigioniero in condizioni disumane un bambino, Filippo. Pubblicato con grande successo nel 2001, Io non ho paura è ormai considerato un classico della nostra letteratura. Nel 2003, il regista Gabriele Salvatores ne ha fatto un film.

    Lorenzo, un quattordicenne introverso e un po' nevrotico, si è barricato in cantina dove conta di passare di nascosto la sua settimana bianca, mentre tutti lo credono in montagna. Al riparo da ogni conflitto, dai compagni di scuola, dalle commedie quotidiane: ecco il suo sogno di felicità. Ma l'arrivo improvviso di Olivia, la sorellastra piena di ruvida vitalità e di problemi, lo costringe a rivedere i suoi piani e ad accettare il gioco caotico della vita là fuori. Nel 2012 da questo romanzo Bernardo Bertolucci ha tratto il film omonimo.

    Lorenzo Cumi is a 14-year-old misfit. To quell the anxiety of his concerned, socially conscious parents, he tells them he’s been invited on an exclusive ski vacation with the popular kids. On the morning of the trip, Lorenzo demands that his mother drop him off before they arrive at the train station, insisting that his status will be compromised if he shows up accompanied by his mother. Reluctantly, she agrees, and as soon as she is safely out of the vicinity, he turns around and makes his way back to his neighborhood, to put his real plan in motion.

    Thousands of depressed little towns dot the vast plain where Cristiano Zena lives with his hard-drinking father, Rino. Unfocused urban sprawl with no centre to look to and nothing to look forward to. Rino Zena and his cronies, Danilo and Quattro Formaggi, are planning a ram raid on an ATM, using a converted tractor. The wary, adoring Cristiano sits in on their meetings, watching their half-baked plans unravel, and thinks about the unattainable Fabiana Ponticelli. He has no idea that something very, very bad is about to happen.
