Milk << Back
"Face to face with my age"
The imminence of majority forces Milk to confront adults, friends, the female world and the life that transforms it.
His friends call him Milk because he swallows liters of pure milk. The immaculate pseudonym is equivalent to the contraction of his name, Michele, and the acronym of Martin Luther King, with whom he believes he can identify himself. In a moment of inner chaos, less than three years after the separation of his parents shatters him, Milk discovers that his young thought is stubbornly full of stereotypes and prejudices against girls, until he meets Adele, an orphan messed up with a metal soul who makes the garzone in a funeral art workshop and with whom he is close to sharing a present difficult to accept.
A novel for young adults on the difficulties of the relationship between peers and on the comparison with the trials of life. Written by the pen of those who, by role and profession, know how to establish an authentic dialogue with children. Topics dealt with: criticality, the relationship between peers, listening and confrontation, resilience.
