A Child Called "It"

I don't know how many of you have heard of or read this book before, but I highly recommend it. Actually I read this a few months ago, I just haven't gotten to posting about it until now. It is a true story written by Dave Pelzer about child abuse. Dave Pelzer is also the child in the book. I finished this book in one day... I couldn't put it down. It is sad and shocking and amazing and everything else all put together. (I sound like a review person... yuck. Haha) I think I cried at the end. This book just gives you a visual of how good we had it (hopefully) as a child. And now I guess too. There are 3 books total but I have only read this one so far. I want to read the other ones sometime though. So if you can, I would tell you to read this book if you get a chance!! :)

(sorry-I just learned how to do those... :D)

I read the book - I actually bought it and the other 2. It is so upsetting, but amazing that he survived all that and is now a productive member of society. Weren't you so mad at his parents!

I haven't read this book yet but maybe I should. If Mari has the other 2 books, maybe you could borrow them from her sometime.

I LOVE that book. Well, all 3 actually. I agree, they are amazing stories but they make me want to hit his mother. Grrr
Anyway, how did you make those hearts? I still can't figure it out <3
