A Child Called "it": One Child's Courage to Survive

"I really liked this book. It was the best book I have ever read!" ~ Reviewed by Claudia

This autobiographical account charts the abuse of a young boy as his alcoholic mother first isolates him from the rest of the family; then torments him; and finally nearly kills him through starvation, poisoning, and one dramatic stabbing. Pelzer's portrayal of domestic tyranny and eventual escape is unforgettable ~ School Library Journal
