Tu contro di me by Jenny Downham( )

1 edition published in 2011 in Italian and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Due normali famiglie inglesi, una povera, i McKenzie, l'altra ricca, i Parker. Michael McKenzie è un ragazzo mite e sensibile. Lavora in un pub, ha due fratelli, una madre depressa e alcolizzata e un problema da risolvere: sua sorella Karyn è stata violentata da Tom Parker, che è stato arrestato ma subito messo in libertà vigilata grazie ai soldi e alle conoscenze del padre. Tom vuole vendicarsi, come minimo riempire Tom di botte facendosi aiutare da Jacko, il suo amico del cuore. Ma a casa dei Parker si festeggia il rilascio di Tom: non c'è nulla da fare. Eppure no, qualcosa c'è: lo sguardo che Michael scambia con Ellis, la sorella minore di Tom. È amore a prima vista, anche se Ellis non sa nulla di Michael, e lui nulla le rivela di sé. Cerca piuttosto di carpire informazioni su Tom, mentre Ellis deve fronteggiare la cattiveria delle compagne di scuola e Karyn va in crisi. Ma alla fine Ellis scopre chi è veramente il suo innamorato. Non c'è più tempo, è lei ora a dover prendere una decisione: quella di dire finalmente la verità, tutta la verità su quella maledetta storia che ha rovinato la sua famiglia e quella di Michael. Dall'autrice di Voglio vivere prima di morire, un nuovo romanzo di suspense e sentimenti che racconta in presa diretta gli adolescenti di oggi, mostrando come l'amore che nasce sia una cosa più grande di ogni dramma, una cosa che riesce anche, talora, a salvare ciò che sembra perduto in partenza
