This book opened up a new view into the life of the Pelzer family, first introduced to us in 'A Child Named It' by Richard's brother Dave. I didn't think this book was as well written, but the story and the horror were no less enthralling.

This is the follow up book to the Boy Called IT. it is by his brother who took his place as the abused one. The author tells his story in great deatail,which may be too much for some.
i've heard that this book seemed self-serving. i did not find that to be so. i just do not understand how the family,neighbors and mostly the school system could allow for these things to go on under their noses. the author admits that it is the early 70"s and maybe the state was not as active.I do not know...but these kids were beaten to an inch of their death....i hope that his mother has gone where she belongs.
