A Child Called "It": One Child's Courage to Survive is Dave Pelzer's autobiographical account of his alleged abuse as a child by an alcoholic mother, Catherine Roerva. It was published on September 1, 1995. Detailing a childhood of not only severe abuse by his mother, but apparent apathy to his plight by his father, A Child Called 'It' describes one of the worst, documented cases of child abuse in Californian history. It tells the story of David Pelzer who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games that left him nearly dead. He had to learn how to play his mother's games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave; and no longer a boy, but an "it." Dave's bed was an old army cot in the basement, and his clothes were torn. When his mother allowed him the luxury of food, it was nothing more than spoiled scraps that even the dogs refused to eat. The outside world knew nothing of his living nightmare. He had nothing or no one to turn to, but his dreams kept him alive...
