Mr. Dave Pelzer!! You are an amazing man. Thank you for writing your books. I needed them to be written.When I read: "A Child Called IT", I thought I was reliving my own childhood. I had a mother from "HELL". But yours made her look like "Mother Teresa. I thank you for the inspiration to seek my own peace, that came from reading you books. I'm looking forward to your next one. Good Luck to you, Brave one.

Hello my name is Keya I would like to say that I really enjoy your book called A Child Called” It". Mr. Pelzer your book is very great most parts made me cry. Your book put a in pack on my life because I’m so thankful that I have a mom who loves me. I still don't understand why your mother done such mean things to you. In your book it seemed like you was a good kid who just wanted to be loved. Why didn't the teacher tell that your mom was doing all the terrible things she could think about? Couldn’t they tell by the cloths you were wearing? How can you still be alive and your mom made you drink Clorox ammonia. Does your mom think all the terrible things she did was wrong when you was a younger boy? I think that all the things your mom did to you just made you stronger and life. I hope that you are having a great life. I can't wait until I read the other book called The Lost Child. Mr. Dave Pelzer your motto is helping others to help themselves. My motto is to just try to do better each day at a time.

K.Bryan,I am proud of you for your way of dealing with your hardships.A lot of people would be thinking of you and caring too.I write this because my foster son went through a similar ordeal to David and like you,was sexually abused.He is now 19,still lives with me and my 2 other adopted sons.David is certainly an inspiration.

I have just finished all 3 of dabes books, which to my surprise because of my difficulties in reading, i read within 3 days. They are such an inspiration to me, as i to was a victim of child abuse although i do not show any scares as it was not physical or physcological but sexual. I understand what it's like to believe i have to go above and beyond in order to make people proud of me and even more so to make me proud of myself, because i too like david never said no as i didn't believe what was happening to me was wrong that it happened in everyone house but just not talked about.
I can also understand how he could forgive his mother and not hate her for what she had done to him, this maybe hard for some people to understand because in my heart i still love the people who abused me i want tghem to like me and be proud to have me in their family.
I am now 20 years old and have finally allowed myself to acknowledge what happen to me from the age of 4 till i was 13, was wrong and tht i should not be asshamed of it, even though i never asked them to stop or said No, As i lay awake at night strugling to sleep i hope and prey that they regret and have remorse for what they done to me when i was an innocent little child.
I have not yet got my life "on track" but i am trying my hardest, and to read how other people made it through makes me believe in myself that i will to one day.
I hope Dave reads all of our comments, for i truely want to thank him from the bottom of my heart.

hi dave, I am reading a child called it for the first time and I couldn't help the tears. I do have a question for you. You and your family had such a great life...what exactly changed it to your mother hating you? by the way... I hate your mother!

My name is nicole i am 16 years old from up state new york. I had to do a book report one year and i read your book "a child called it" and i know im only 16 but it really touched me. Not that you had a terrible childhood but that you survived all that and where a famous writer. Your books are, well extremly sad. but they show people what really happens and if someone is in a situation like the one you were in they can see that its possible to survive. I want to thank you for you amazing strength. You are an amazing person. Oh and by the way i read the rest of them too. Well im in school and the bell just rung so i have to go to class bye !!!!

I'm grateful this board is avalible and I hope Dave can read the messages sometime.
The first book has left me with such sadness. People, this stuff really does happen. My mother was manic bipolar. She had alot of breakdowns and the treatment was barbarick at best back in the 50-70's. She would build up to a full blown manic state then be taken away for 30 days at a time. When she returned she was thrown back into a house full of 8 small children. All the electrical shock treatments sapped here memory and most everytime she came home she didn't remember us. My siblings and I have always talked about some of the things we witnessed happening to one another. But now I see how alot of the "accidents" were just to bizzar to have been accidents. I am married to a wonderful man today but he was raised the "Brady Bunch" style and looks at me in horror when something triggers an old memory of my childhood. He has cried and said, "But you survived". After reading this book I can let go of alot of the past because my childhood was wonderful compared and I feel just sick even days after reading it. I plan to read more of his books.

I'd like a honest vote, raise of hands how many of you would pick up a book on werewolves, vampires, magicians or cupid.
