Time to open another door on the Literary Advent Calendar. Today’s bookish treat is chosen by Luana Lewis, author of Forget Me Not.
Luana has chosen I’m Not Scared by Niccolo Ammaniti.
Luana says: ‘I’m Not Scared is one of my favourite novels. Translated from Italian and set in a tiny village in Italy, this book is crime fiction without the detectives. The hero is nine-year old Michele, who discovers a terrible secret involving blackmail and murder that shatters his trust in his family. The novel is exquisitely written and different from anything I’ve read before.’
