It’s the end of the school year, and Toto is looking forward to spending a long, languid summer together, exploring the hills around their home town of Ravello, but the arrival of new friends brings unexpected twists and turns in their lives.
Follow Toto and Michele through a summer of decision as they face tough choices about their future.
A short story in four chapters set on the mountainous Italian coast. Seven years after ‘The Summer of the Firefly’, another teen struggles with his identity following a bust-up with his father and his best friend.
After a tragic accident brings his old life in London to an end, shy teenager Gianni is sent to live with his estranged grandparents in the beautiful surroundings of Italy’s Amalfi Coast.
There, he meets the irrepressible Angelo, who promises to show him his world and, as the long, hot summer days unfold, slowly helps Gianni to heal.
Gianni’s new life in the sun brings him friendship of a kind that he has never known and, with it, important discoveries about himself. But what will the future hold when the summer of the firefly comes to an end?
