Publisher's Summary

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. It is a secret that will force Michele to question everything and everyone around him.
An enthralling thriller, I'm Not Scared is also a devastatingly authentic portrayal of childhood and the tension when it must join the adult world.

Unabridged but Some Passages are Omitted

Story and narration were well done and immensely entertaining but not too happy certain passages from the book were omitted from the audio recording. To get the full story, you are going to have to listen along and do some of your own reading-like I did.

I enjoyed this book, but have to admit found it a bit tense at times for a bed time book!
