{my thoughts} - This book is a book that is not for someone with a week stomach. It is about a child's struggle to deal with a bad hand of cards that he has been dealt. The way in which this child is treated and manipulated breaks the readers heart. It saddened me that the school did nothing to help this child until it was almost to late. When a child goes through so much pain and suffering to the extent that it is apparent something is going on in the home life there should be more investigation into the matter. I have issues know that that CPS had been involved and never did their jobs. When children really need CPS to intervene it never does. It's like they see it worthy of their time to tear apart family's that don't need their help but to leave those family's that do need help alone. CPS in this book is easily fooled by the mother and her actions in manipulating her son. She uses him to prove to them that nothing is wrong within the household and that she is treating them right. However, in reality that isn't the case and the child endures years of suffering because of it.… (mais)

A Child Called “It” gave me the chills. Upon opening the book, I couldn’t put it down. I find it horrifying that any child has to go through pain like David Pelzer’s. Reading this book made me realize how grateful I am for my childhood. I thought I was struggling when my parents got mad at me for a bad grade in school. I came to the realization that what I thought was hard was nothing when compared to what this child had to go through. David’s mother beat him, starved him, stabbed him, and even tried to gradually kill him by poisoning him. He fed himself with scraps from the garbage bin. He was forced to drink his vomit and ammonia. He was dedicated to keeping himself alive in hopes of somebody that would love him. David is truly a warrior who fought for his life. Therefore, he should be recognized for that.
