Publisher's Description

Selected as one of the Best Books of 2014 by:
'In this book there are portraits of girls whose destinies can still change if not the destiny of the area in which they are growing up. Annalisa was one of them. She kept a diary, in which she wrote that Naples was becoming too dangerous to live in and how she was dreaming to escape.' - Valerio Spada

Gomorrah Girl tells two stories in one, the problems of growing up in a crime-ridden area and the murder of Annalisa Durante, a young woman caught in the crossfire of a Mafia shootout.

The stories are brought together through innovative, book within a book, design. Bound together are Spada's photographs documenting adolescence in the land of Camorrah (the name for the Mafia in Naples) and pages detailing the police investigation.
