I read the three books in the trilogy-a child called it- when i was 8 years old. I'm 15 now, but i continue to reread them over and over again. They are very touching books. It's amazing how some people treat each other, and Dave survived it all. I'm not sure I would have!!

When i read this book i was 14 years old. i cried most of the time, Its so horrible to even read what an abusive mother can do to her child. I also read The Lost Boy. They are both my favorite books. Your writing is outstanding, I have a bok repot to do, I'm doing it on your book:)
thanks for writing such an sad but inspirtaion story to many people

I was an "IT" child, only my mother called me "Slob". The parallels between David's book and my life are so alike. He gave me understanding into my mother's behavious and my Dad's. My Dad was my best friend. My mother's abuses wer not as extreme as David's mothers, but they are so there. Many memories came back to me as I read the book, and now I'm able to have a greater understanding and I can resolve the buried pain and anger of my lost innocense. My life is good, and I like me. Its been a rough road but a grand journey.
Thank you David Pelzer,
Sandi (Poppy) Wilson

Having wanted to read your story for years, i never plucked up the courage untill my life took a dramatic change. Abuse is abuse no matter what type of relationship it occurs in, but abuse of a child is a whole differant issue. I want to thank you for being an inspiration in my most darkest hours and thinking of you and your amazing dignity and strength has helped me more than i can put into words. I dealt with more after reading your story than I have done in my whole 30 Years of living. Thank you David from the bottom of my heart. May you live a long and happy life near your beloved Russian River.

Dear Dave, I heard about your book(A child called it) from a friend. At first I was not sure if I should read it because I am sensitive on the subject, but know that the book would have a good ending gave me the strength to read it and know you are a true survivor. I do not know if you have talked to your mom since, but she was wrong for that. I seen you pics on your website and I must say you were so cute. I have so much respect for you for letting people know about child abuse and how terrible it is. You are a great father and wonderful author.

Hi David. i've read all your books sevral times & i love them all (A Child Called "It", The Lost Boy, A Man Named Dave, The Privelage of Youth, oh & also even your brother's book A Brother's Journey). I've never read a book that touched me quite like A Child Called "It". It amazes that no matter how cruel your mother or anyone else was to you, you were still just as sweet as ever. Even when you said you hated sombody, in the next chapter you'd be sayin how much you loved em & wished they loved you back. I just wanted to hold that poor little boy in my arms. Now, i dont think you wanna hear what i wanted ta do to your mother!
Anyways, I just want you ta know that your an angel on earth. Your my hero & i'd be honored to meat you someday. God bless you David! Your a wonderful man & one of a kind!
