Dave Pelzer's story is the story of a child brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played torturous, unpredictable games -- games that left one of her three sons nearly dead. Dave had to learn how to play his mother's games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave, and no longer a boy but an 'it'.

This was a seriously harsh read. I would not suggest it for the sensitive among us. It is graphic and leaves you with a paranoid -bad taste in your mouth as you look closely at the children around you for a very long time.
