This book was a sad story of how a boy got abused by his alcoholic mother, and was forced to play the wicked games she thought of. This was my absolute favorite and recommend it to teens. Its worth reading and learning about how relationships can split apart by someone abusing a family member.

Pelzer really knows how to make the readers read on! He tells his real life story and how he suffers and puts up with it, for example being put to work at home non stop and not being fed by his mom who is the main person who humillates him. In addition, Towards the end, the book offers help for those who suffer violence at home and outside of home. Pelzer leaves us with this thought of what happens next in his next series of books.

I strongly recommend this book to anyone who likes Dave Pelzer. And what’s sad is that it is a true story.

Heartbreaking story of extreme child abuse. A real "page turner."

This teaches a good lesson to school aged kids on: people are not always as they appear to be. Give everyone a chance to become your friend. They may need one. Do not judge on appearances. Denise
