I was litterally gobsmaked when I read your collection 'My Story'. I originally bought the book for a school report (to do on The Lost Boy)and ended up reading the entire three stories over one weekend. I was captured by the plot and I am now aware of how lucky some of us have it. dave, what you went through was herendous and it is a miracle that you survived. Every person in the world should read this book to know what some have been put through. You are a strong man, who came from a cruel childhood. All the best for your future.
From An inspired reader.

Hey Dave... i just wanted to write to you and say that after reading your books, you have made me realize that as long as i am fed everyday and am loved by my parents, thats all i need to survive. I know that as i child you didnt have a very good life, and i would like to say that i am sorry that you were treated that way. One of my good friends has been going through some things at home and she finally let them out and now she is glad that she did... her father milested her and her little sisters but she couldnt tell anyone for fear of her and her sisters lives.But just like you, she is now out of that life and she has a wonderful boyfriend and with the help of him and her friends, she is trying to forget about what happened. But also like you, there will always be that memory that will be stuck in there forever! Your books inspired me to tell her to get help and tell someone for if she didnt, she could lose her life and maybe even lose her sisters. This had been going on when she and her sisters were 5 or 6 and she is now almost 17. I would just like to tell you thanks for sharing your story. Some people think that if there parents wont let them do something that they are the worst parents in the world, but they dont realize that there are children that get beaten everyday for no known reason. Once again thank you for writing "A Child Called It." your friend, Britney Bethel

david your book is so moving. it has changed my life. I have alot to identify with that book. Although my mom was not that abusive to me and my two sisters she was with men that would rape and abuse us. like you once were i am in foster care. and like you went through my mom is also mean to me i havn't seen her in 3 1/2 months. when i read this book i felt moved and i felt that since you went throught alot in your life and you made it then i can make it too.
