A Child Called It had to be one of the most heart-wrenching (and gut wrenching) books I've read. I read it through my tears then got up and got violently ill. I was compelled, for some reason, to continue through the David Pelzer series: The Lost Boy, A Man Named Dave, and then onto a similar account of abuse written by his brother...all of which subsequently sent me in tears running into the bathroom to get sick all over again.
Years later, I heard from someone that Pelzer was a hoax, but I truly couldn't believe it. I can't imagine someone even making up the kind of torture those boys had to endure.
I was going to pick up Angela's Ashes next time at the library, but now I don't know...
