I finished this book in only a couple of hours. I came across this book cause it's on the list of most disturbing books ever written. Yes, it does deserves to be on that list and it probably should be number 1 due to the subject matter. I gave the book 2 stars because I just cannot believe everything in the book was true. There is no way. Now I am not saying that Mr Pelzer was not abused but remember this is a book and it must sell so I feel that child abuse was in a way sensationalize for that purpose. Also in no part of the book is it written as to why all of a sudden his mother started to abuse and just him. Something must have happened for her to have singled him out. This book is just to messed up.
