I personally loved this book! so interesting and sad. a book about torture to a youth and how another youth becomes friends with him, when he has greater connections to the child then he thought! The translation seemed a little off though but was still amazing.

A good story about a boy's loss of innocence in rural Italy. This novella is based on a true story.
