Author(s): Dave Pelzer
The remarkable story of Dave Pelzer, available again in one volume.
A Child Called It: Dave Pelzer's story is of a child beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother, a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games that left one of her three sons nearly dead. No longer considered a son, or a boy, but an 'it', Dave had to learn how to play these games in order to survive. His bed was an old army cot in the basement and when he was allowed food it was scraps from the dogs' bowl. Throughout, Dave kept alive the dream of finding a family who would love and care for him. This is an inspirational look at the horrors of child abuse and steadfast determination to survive against the odds.
The Lost Boy: The harrowing but ultimately uplifting true story of Dave's journey through the foster-care system in search of a family who will love him.
A Man Named Dave: The gripping conclusion to Pelzer's inspirational trilogy. With extraordinary generosity Dave takes us into his past. At last he confronts his father and ultimately his mother. Finally, Dave finds the courage to break the chains of the past and learn to love, trust and live for the future.
