A story about a boy with some psychological issues and how he tries to deal with them. In his journey he meets back up with his estranged half sister and for the brief time that they have, get to know and help each other. This was an interesting read. It didn't quite end the way I was hoping, left me feeling sad at what a life of drugs can do to a person and those that love them.

One can say that the story of Me and You is fairly simple and not at all complex, but I would have to disagree. It's much more than a teenage boy hiding out in secret in the cellar while his parents are upstairs, thinking that he's gone away on a trip with his fellow classmates. It's about the dark secrets that family members keep from each other, the simmering anger that is hidden from the external world. To be honest, I didn't really like the main character, Lorenzo. It wasn't because he lied to his mother about the so called trip. I think this book would have been fascinating if it had been told through his step-sister's point of view. The ending was so sad, though, and I found myself tearing up. Niccolo Ammaniti can really write, there's no doubt about that. One of my favorite scenes is when Lorenzo's mother is confronted by an aggravated driver. I love the tension that he builds in that scene while Lorenzo is helpless, even though he wants to defend his mother. I think everyone can relate to this at some point in his or her life. All in all a good story from a great writer.
