"A Man Named Dave" is the third book in the "Child Called It" series. A memeoir on a troubled life by Dave Pelzer. I liked how Dave would put flashbacks in his memior from previous books in the series, there were stories from all ages of his life. However, Pelzer included some things that were completely random and had no relation to the book. This made some parts very boring. I thought that he had a great voice, though. The way in which he wrote was how a friend would tell you a story. In addition, Pelzer included many charcters and told their opinions and perspectives. I felt this was easier to understand and made them seem more real. This book was very detailed and it had great word choice. The author must have chosen just the right word for every verb, adjective, etc. Overall, I give "A Man Named Dave" four stars. I would recommend this to any seventh grader.
