About his own life, Pelzer describes how he endured unthinkable abuse at the hand of his own mother. He provides detailed accounts of the abuse and neglect as well as the emotions and pain he endured, his struggle to cope and survive, and how he eventually was freed from her and the hell he was living. Unfortunately, child abuse is one of the major issues that our country is plagued with, yet we neglect to bring this to the attention of the entire nation. It is often over looked because everyone has a different view of what exactly defines child abuse. They are: emotional abuse, neglect, physical abuse, and sexual abuse.

I often shivered with fear as I sat in the garage, hoping for some reason he might not leave. In spite of all that had happened, I still felt Father was my protector.
When I read A Child Called It, the first thing that struck me was the philosophical and relatively optimistic outlook that this young boy had on his life. I've read autobiographies before, and believe that nothing cheapens a tragic story more than someone openly feeling sorry for themself throughout the book. The 'poor little me' approach was not once used by Dave Pelzer. Even though his life was one of the most horrifically treated in the history of abused children, he holds an air of dignity and completely engages us in his story. People should read this book because, as well as letting us truly appreciate the lives that we lead, it enables us to see that there is always hope for us at the end - no matter how bad our situations may be. He handles even the most painful paragraphs with delicacy, and the book as a result is an inspiring and remarkable read. He no longer is a member of the family but an 'It', a slave to the family.
