    A Child Called "It"

    What a good book... such a horrible story. And whats even more shocking is that this is only 1 case out of thousands that are similar.

    I suggest you read it if you've never done so.

    Re: A Child Called "It"

    well im reading the "Lost Boy" and that part 2 of the book there is 3 book and the last 1 is call "A Man Call David"

    A Child Called "It" is a heart wrenching true story about one child's survival of one of the worst child abuse cases ever reported in California history. Dave Pelzer lived in a world of starvation, cruelty, and torture from the age of four until his rescue by courageous school officials at the age of twelve. This autobiography will both horrify and inspire all who read Dave's incredible journey through the dark insanity of his mother's rage.

    March 5, 1973 began like most days in Dave Pelzer's life. Dave was attempting to finish the dishes as quickly as he could in order to be allowed to have the scraps left from his brothers' breakfast. When Mother came into the room and slammed his face against the counter for not having his hand in the hot water.

    CH 4
    School became the only hope Dave had in his life. The fall after the burn incident, Mother sent Dave to school with new clothes and a new lunch pail. However Mother forced Dave to wear the same clothes week after week and they soon became soiled and torn. Mother never tried to cover Dave's bruises either; instead she forced Dave to memorize ready-made excuses for the marks.

    Dave would be allowed his brother's leftover cereal for breakfast if he finished his chores on time, but he rarely was allowed dinner. Dave would be so hungry that he would fantasize about food at night. Dave began to steal food from school, at first stealing Twinkies and other desserts from the other children's lunch bags. When the children began to.....

    CH 5 In the summer of 1971, Dave was not quite eleven. He had finally learned pretty much what to expect when he did not meet one of his mother's deadlines on his chores, or if he were caught stealing. During the summer, Dave rarely got food, since he did not leave the house to attend school. Dave was subject to his mother's whims in that regard, often going three days or more without food. One night, Dave was on his third day without food and was summoned to the kitchen to do the dishes. Mother told him he had twenty minutes. Especially angry this night, Mother had a knife in her hand as she screamed at Dave, threatening to kill him if he did not finish in the time allowed.


    sad story if you ask me. but if you dont know this all happen to him in real life

    I finished it in like two hours and it was pretty sad but not as interesting. Poor boy though, I want to read the sequels to it.
