A Child Called It by Dave Pelzer
A Child Called It

sugar bear, March 14, 2012

This book is the first of a trilogy. It is a very difficult read, because it is one of those books that just....stays with you.
When you are through reading this unbelievably true story ( it has to be true- you couldn't make this up) you will truly feel like you have been on a journey through hell and back.
This book is for Adults.
I would recommend that you read this book early in the day, so that you can work it off your mind by bedtime. This is not a bedtime book, believe me.
Once you begin reading it, you are hooked.
Dave Pelzer is most inspiring, and definitely one of my heroes- along with Elizabeth Smart.

This book is accurate, it will send chills up your spine.
The author takes one on a behind the screen tour of The U.S. Government, incredible revelations of the future, and many of the people behind it.
Read it, and decide for yourself. A real page turner!
