I have read Dave's books about 5 times now, and still cannot imagine all he went through. I too was abused by my step-father, and almost seen death a few times from him, then my now ex-husband. I know they say how children are raised are how they will grow up and raise their children. Well, the cycle can stop. It just takes will power and remembering what you went through and ask yourself if you want that for your own children. I think that this would be a good thing to make into a film for those that need to go to abuse programs and show exactly what can happen to those children that are abused. I can't remember what the movie is called, but it was about a lil girl named Kat, and she was abused by her father, in turn tried to kill her little brother and her new family. She eventually had to be sent away to a house for those types of children, and locks and a bell was put on her door, until till she got well enough that they knew she would not hurt anyone. Its sad anyone has to go through this, and noone knows why some parents do this to their children. Theres a difference between abuse and discipline.

I have just read a boy called it and The Lost Boy, once I started reading them I could not put them down until I finished the books. I am now reading A Man Named Dave which is just as enthrawling as the previous two books. I am only two years older than Dave, my heart really goes out to him. I could never imagin any child going through the trauma he went through. All I can think of all day is what he went through. I am so proud of what he has done with his life and what he is now doing to help others, and I dont even know him personally. Keep the good work up Dave..

oh my gosh. I love Dave's books. They really inspire me. This is my second time posting a message... but i cant help myself. I really think everybody should read his books. You most likely will cry, but it IS worth every minute.

i am 21 yrs. old and i am currently a student at Cedar Valley Community College here in Dallas,Texas, i chose the book to read in my college english course, this was my second time reading the book and i think i was more touched this second time reading the book than i was my first time...the book is real touching and when i read it, i was so mad at mrs.pelzer that i wished i was in front of her when i was reading the book because no child deserves this but the book is a real good book and i would advise everybody to read it, you may cry but you will enjoy the book.

when i read this story it truely touched my heart. It was one of the most saddest stories i had ever read before. While reading your first book "the child called it" i cried for a while. then after reading "The Lost Boy" i cried, its hard not to. This book mad me think deep down. and wonder what if i had to go through this, i probally would have just given up on life. But no not you, you are a hero that every one should look up to. you were a brave young boy! keep your head up!
