display_descriptionTells the story of a child's abuse at the hands of his alcoholic mother An autobiographical account that tells the story of a child's abuse at the hands of his alcoholic mother. [This book] is [an] account of one of the most severe child abuse cases in California history. It is the story of Dave Pelzer, who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played torturous, unpredictable games - games that left him nearly dead. He had to learn how to play his mother's games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave; and no longer a boy, but an "it."--Back cover.
