BEST STORY
Dave Pelzer I been in those problems with our mom. I survived you did too.

The best book we have read this year
This book is really sad and the mother is a really bad lady. I think she should go to jail and get the death penalty for what she did to David. No one on Earth should ever have a mom that beats them like that. This is our class review on this book.

The Will to Survive
Dave was very courageous and strong willed. It amazes me that he even wanted to survive through all this. He was starved of love and desperately wanted to be a part of a family. I recommend this book to anyone who is looking for an adventure to find the love of a family.

A child called "it"
I thought this book was very sad and no child should be treated like that. In my opinion the mother is horrifying.
