the boy called it
To be honest I was never a reader but this book made me want to start reading. This is just sad, what happened to this little boy, and I'm glad he overcame this crazy thing.

why
I have see this book everywhere in my school, thinking it was just a book, but when I finally got to reading the book I got sucked into it. The way the mother was it just hurt me. He was such a strong boy; I don't know if he is still alive but if he was I wish I could meet him, plus I mostly blame the Dad for getting the Mom into it all and leaving the kid when he knew what was happening. I love the book and if I could meet him I would kiss and hug him. btw im 12

thetrue courage and faith he had in his youth
I just cant believe that it happened to him....he was just a small young boy.....its soooo sad I wish I could have been there to help him even though I'm only 14:/ awww I just want to cry and help him... at least that he got out of that mess...I just want to go to that woman and ask her why the heck she abused that boy! The faith he had through all that beating shows that he is such a strong person inside and out. I'm so happy that he is such an awesome person and has a lot of faith and courage and has God. I just loved the book it made me cry and cry and then get mad but at the end he showed her he has such a strong personality (:
