A harrowing, yet inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Dave Pelzer was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother - a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games. She no longer considered Dave a son, but a slave; no longer a boy, but an 'it'. His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and unwashed, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl. The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors. But throughout Dave kept alive dreams of finding a family to love him. This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational book of the horrors of child abuse and the steadfast determination of one child to survive.

The #1 New York Times–bestselling author and child abuse survivor reveals the challenges that he still faces as an adult, as a husband, and as a father. In the blockbuster autobiography A Child Called “It”, Dave Pelzer shared the story of his childhood—one of the most dramatic and extreme stories of child abuse ever prosecuted in the state of California. As a child, Pelzer was beaten, starved, and abused both emotionally and physically by his alcoholic and mentally unstable mother. As a man, Pelzer went on to have love, happiness, a fulfilling career, and a family of his own. To many, Pelzer seemed to have found his happy ending. But for a child abuse survivor, living a normal adult life carries challenges and complications above and beyond those faced by most people. This book, the fifth in Pelzer’s nonfiction series, provides an honest and courageous look at the difficulties inherent in marriage, parenthood, work, and life from the perspective of someone who survived horrific physical and emotional terrors as a child—and who seeks to meet the responsibilities and complications of adult life with love, strength, and an open heart.

The concluding volume of Dave Pelzer's million-copy bestselling memoir. 'I don't blame others for my problems. I stand on my own. And one day, you'll see, I'm going to make something of myself.' These words were eighteen-year-old Dave Pelzer's declaration of independence to his mother, a woman who had abused him with shocking brutality. But even years after he was rescued, his life remained a continual struggle. Dave felt rootless and awkward, an outcast haunted by memories of his years as the bruised, cowering 'It' locked in his mother's basement. Dave's dramatic reunion with his dying father and the shocking confrontation with his mother led to his ultimate calling: mentor to others struggling with personal hardships. From a difficult marriage to the birth of his son, from an unfulfilling career to an enduring friendship, Dave was finally able to break the chains of his past, learning to trust, to love, and to live.

Es gibt Geheimnisse, die zu groß sind für das Herz eines Mädchens Klamotten, Partys, Jungs und Schule: Diese Welt ist Carey und ihrer kleinen Schwester Jenessa völlig fremd. Die Geräusche des Waldes, das beengte und doch so vertraute Zusammenleben im Wohnwagen und die oft tagelange Abwesenheit ihrer Mom – das ist der Alltag der Mädchen, die in einem Trailer tief versteckt inmitten eines Naturschutzgebietes leben. Als Careys und Jenessas Vater die Mädchen zu sich und seiner neuen Familie holt, finden die Tage im Wald ein jähes Ende. Zu jäh für die fünfzehnjährige Carey, die sich daran gewöhnt hat, sich und ihre Schwester durchzubringen und zu beschützen, koste es, was es wolle. Dass der Preis dafür mitunter sehr hoch war, begreift sie erst jetzt durch die liebevolle Anteilnahme ihres Vaters. Weil sie das Geheimnis, das auf ihrem Herzen lastet, nicht für immer verdrängen kann ...
