A Boy Called It-I never got around to reading the other two books of his,but I decided I wanted to do that so I re-read the first one. Wow. I forgot how amazing this book was. I read it cover to cover today without putting it down once and I almost never do that. It was amazing and heart retching and terrifying to think that things like that really go on. An excellent book that EVERYONE should read and it's a really simple short read too.

The Lost Boy-This was just as good as the first. It explains what he went through while in foster care and how his mother still had some emotional control over him even though he was finally out of her clutches physically. Loved it. Luckily it didn't make me cry like the first book though haha.

A Man Named Dave-Tells mostly about his adult life and has a last meeting between Dave and his mother before she dies. I loved it. It was the perfect ending to the trilogy and it showed that even after all he had been through he made it.
