Lorenzo Cumi is a fourteen-year-old loner. His wealthy parents think he is away on a school skiing trip, but in fact he has stowed away in a forgotten cellar. For a week he plans to live in perfect isolation, keeping the adult world at bay. Then a visit from his estranged halfsister, Olivia, changes everything.

Me and You is a breathtaking tale of alienation acceptance and wanting to be loved. Written in Ammaniti’s prizewinning prose, this is a compulsive account of how one unlikely alliance between two outsiders blows open one family’s secrets.

User Review  - Sara - Goodreads

If I had just picked this up and read it without first reading the cover flap or any of the blurbs, I probably would've given it three stars instead of two. I didn't dislike it. It just wasn't quite as good as I was expecting it to be. Read full review
