This book was ridiculous. I am willing to put money on the fact that it was mostly made-up. Yes, I understand that children are abused in the world and it is very sad, but this book was more than likely a cry for attention and fame. Nowhere in the book does it give any reason for his mother to hate him in comparison to how she feels about her other children. Also, do you not think his teachers would get the hint that the kid is goddamn hungry and bring him a lunch? This book just made no sense, and was also incredibly poorly written. I've never even given a book one star but if I could give this one no stars I would have. Complete waste of time.
