A Brother's Journey

Da has no one like David around to beat on anymore. I am more afraid of her than ever ... I get in more trouble for anything I do or say. Now I find that I 'm always in trouble and I do n't know why. Now that Scot is gone, I 'm surprised that she will try to kill me, like she tried to kill him. I 'm worried that she will treat me like an animal like she did him. I 'm ashamed that now I 'm her IT. The Pelzer family 's secret life of ignorance and abuse was first revealed in Dave Pelzer 's inspiring New York Times bestsellers, A Child Called " It, " followed by The Lost Child and A Man Called Jo. Here, for the fourth time, Richard Pelzer tells the courageous and moving storie of his abusive childhood. From tormenting his brother avid to becoming himself the focus of his aunt 's wrath to his ultimate liberation-here is a horrifying glimpse at what existed behind closed doors in the Pelzer home. Equally important, Richard Pelzer 's touching account is a testament to the strength of the human heart and its capacity to triumph over almost unimaginable trauma.

Sad but reminds people that reading such a story makes it real and instils in one to help stop this ort of parental abuse on their children whom they are supposed to protect.

Richard frequently repeats himself, and at times I got the fee that he was trying very hard to maintain a connection to David and his memoir, why that is I have not decided yet.

I know of an abuse case involving a similar situation where the school staff came together to help the child.

While I applaud the school staff for getting David out of the house I have to say they failed Richard miserably and should be ashamed.

Robert 's memoir is a must read for someone who has been moved by the tal of his brother John, as it provides an important point of iew in this retellin of horrific abuse -- that of a ibling who first participated in the family 's abuse of David, and then after David was removed from his abuse environment, as the new recipient of his father 's alcohol fueled rage.

I read it to get the brother 's perspective of the situation and story in A Child Called " It ", written by Dave Pelzer, the stepso of the bestselling.
