A Child Called It
A Child Called ?It?
This was a very touching and inspirational story told by Dave Pelzer. It is about the awful maltreatment that David endured as a child and also how he survived to become a strong man today. The story begins when David was 12 years old, on the day that he was finally rescued from his mother?s abuse. He tells the story from that day first so that the readers know that he does indeed survive. This makes the story all that much more unbelievable. This is a story of survival not one of demise or hate. It introduces the major theme of the power of the human spirit to overcome remarkable odds.
The story begins on the day that David was finally rescued. David?s teachers had noticed bruises and scars on him for years.

As David sits in the office on this final day he anxiously awaits what he thinks will lead to another beating. He briefly recalls what had happened that morning before he got to
