This volume in the Where We Live series follows the lives of the children of Italian migrants to big-city Canada.

When the saw Tony's nasty smile, the Severino twins knew they were in trouble. But would they let big Tony get away with stealing their money? No, they wouldn't. And as they found out, if you use your brains, you can stop bullies from pushing you around. The stories in this collection show kids who use considerable ingenuity to overcome problems in their lives.

Marco and Michela evokes the richness of lives filled with more than one culture.
