More of the same from Dave Pelzer. I'm sure his tale of overcoming abuse is supposed to inspire people, but I quickly tired of his narrative style.

This story is a continuation of David Pelzer's story. The first book "A child called "It" should be read first. Although a recap is done about the abusive nature of his mother and all the horrendous things she did to him, the first book gives you more of the background.

In this book we follow Pelzer's journey though a series of foster families. One can not say enough about the patience and virtue of these families and how they try to help these children.

Pelzer has some setbacks on his journey, not all of them his own doing but he is very unlucky by being in the wrong place at the wrong time. Furthermore, his mother continues to visit him and tries to continue her abuse verbally. Pelzer defines resilence. A very good read
