Naomi Esrig What really gets me is the aftermath of the book being published. Every member of the family has come out publicly to announce that none of it ever happened, and that Dave Pelzer was just lying to be recognized.
Shelby Same. What is terrible about it is that the mother went on to abusing her other children in the next books. I am horrified. And she didn't even go to jail,because she said that she had a mental illness,and by law, all they need is therapy. Why!?!?!?
Jerrese Naomi Esrig,Actually ,his younger brother Richard Pelzer also wrote a book corroborating a lot of what David said in his first book and went on to reveal that his mother began focusing her abuse on him shortly after David was removed from the home and placed into Foster Care.The book is titled ' A Brother's journey' I beleive.Davids book also contains statements from many people who helped rescue him in the forward ,including one of his teachers, his school nurse, principal and social worker.
