One Child's Courage to Survive.

As a child, Dave Pelzer was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother, a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games that left one of her three sons nearly dead. She no longer considered Dave a son, but a slave; no longer a boy, but an "it". His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and smelly, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl. The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors.

Dave dreamed of finding a family to love him and call him their son. It took years of struggle, deprivation and despair to find his dream and make something of himself in the world. This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational memoir of one child's determination to survive.

A Child Called It
This is a heartbreaking story about a child named Dave who was raised by an abusive mother. It is definitely an unforgettable story and while it makes you emotional while reading it, it is unputdownable. Its a real eye opener into the world of child abuse and what goes through the child and mothers mind during these hard times. Its not for the sensitive but I would recommend it to those who are looking for a suspenseful book from page one to the last. Reviewed by 01cg.
