A Child Called It cover

'Immensely powerful and is an extraordinary testament to the human desire for survival' Daily Mail

A harrowing and inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer.

Brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother - Dave became a slave; he was no longer a boy, but an 'it'.

His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and unwashed, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl. The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors. But throughout Dave kept alive dreams of finding a family to love him.

This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational book of the horrors of child abuse and the steadfast determination of one child to survive. It is the first book in the My Story trilogy.
