This book brought out so many emotions in me. It broke my heart, made me angry, made me cry, made me wonder. This book is of overwhelming strength and determination of one little boy who constantly abused. Abused to unthinkable acts; such as buring him with a hot stove burner. To think that a child really went through such tortures and neglect is hard to come to terms with. Dave Pelzer is an amazing writer and I commend him on writing his books of his life and escape from cruelty and evil. His strength is amazing. His books really bring to light the unimaginable situations so many children are put in everyday at the hands of people they are supposed to be able to trust. This book is a tear jerker but definitely a read!
