David was a young boy who was abused everyday by his mother. David could never go out the house, he was always stuck in the basement. He could never go out unless his mom yelled at him to go and clean the dishes or to clean the house. David went to school with holes in his clothes everyday for two years. He stole food because his mom only fed him scraps out of the garbage if she thought he needed it.
David’s mom was so mad at him for stealing food, she filled up the tub with cold water and almost drowned him!. He didn’t die, but she did this multiple times to him in the book, The A Child Called “It”, by Dave Pelzer. Dave Pelzer told us about how his mom really treated him when he was a kid.
This was a very good book. I also thought it was pretty interesting to learn about how someone else lived a terrible life compared to my life. I recommend this book to people that can handle books with a lot of bad stuff that happens in real life.
