This book made feel like I was living tthis boy life through his eyes. I felt the fear in my heart when he heard his mother, I felt the defiance of not giving up his last piece of dignity. I feel it is something I truly understand and not just something i know about that happens somewhere.
This book really connected me and my husband as he was abused by his mother for the later part of his life. I applaud and appreciate the realness and courage you show throughout this. Thank you for speaking.
It's amazing what the human spirit can endure. This story is just heart breaking to me I found myself so angry at David's mother more then on the verge of tears but cannot deny the fact that tears were shed while listening to this book. Truly an amazing story that will leave you in awe.
After reading this book I felt that my view of the world has changed. If you love children and would do anything to help children then this book is a great read for you. It is saddening, but it shows how a children need our help. This books deeply shows how cruel the world can be. It reveals one little boys hope for survival, and how he dealt with child abuse. I loved this book because it changed my views of the world and makes me want to do more to help children. I would encourage anyone to read!! Loved it!!
I loved this book. It perfectly describes what it's like to be abused. I dislike the feeling I get when I listen to the punishments of the child, but I don't dislike anything about the narration or the story itself.
