A Child Called " It " by Dave Peltzer
Reviewed by: Shanta
A Child Called " It" by Dave Pelzer is one of the most realistic, inspirational, yet tragic stories I have ever read. It depicts the life of a boy under child abuse, as his mother was emotionally unstable. His mother creates the most horrifying games for him that leave him barely alive. Yet, he has to learn how to play them in order to survive, as in his world, there is no one left who cares about him but himself. I recommend this book to children who are older than eleven, as the games that the mother makes her son do are terrifying. However, it brings about the truth of the lives of some children, and lets readers know how their life is like. This book is inspirational and suspenseful. It makes you feel happy to be who you are, with a loving family, and people who care about you.
