"Child Called It" by Dave Pelzer

This is a book that is not for little kids! The punishments that Dave suffers, and eventually survives, is impossible to even imagine...a young kid experiencing severe abuse. I couldn't get through reading the book without crying. Dave wrote this book for his anger mangement classes to deal with all the anger that he held for his mother. I love this story because it really grabded my attention with all the drama that happens in it. I couldn't put the book down! I rate this true story a five out of five stars.

This is one of the most frequently-read books in our library. Dave's story continues in "Lost Boy," "The Privilege of Youth," and a "Man Named Dave." Horrifically, once Dave was removed from his mother's home, her abuse extended to Dave's brother, Richard. You can read his story in "A Brother's Journey."
