This book is amazing in so many ways. It is a biography,and id recommend the readers to be 18 or older. David has to hop through so many obstacles to please his abusive mother. His father is a firefighter and is never available to help him.He has three brothers who get treated like royalty,but poor David is the IT of the family. His mother hurts him mentally and physically,beating him and taunting him. David stays strong he still runs to school and he never talks back to his mother. This book hit me hard i could not set it down. It hit me so hard because of my family, we are very alike. I’d daydream while reading this book seeing flashbacks of my childhood. I could not beleive what poor David is forced to do. His mother and herevil ways tried to get David to crawl onto a flaming stove,she would make him puke up food he stole when he was not fed at home, He scrubbed the bathroom floors with ammoniawhile the door is locked shut. I just hate his mother and all she made him suffer through.All of the blood that innocent boy must have spilled just frustrates me. Also i can not get over the fact that David’s aunts and uncles,his grandma,and all of his neighbors heard and saw this abuse happening but none of them had the heart to stop it all for him. Makes me cry for David. Although,I can not wait to read the sequel. I would ave to say if you can not handle violence or gore do not read this book. Also if abuse hits your heart hard because you too were forced into some bad situations i would say you better read this book!! It shows you exactly how lucky we are!
