Cassie posts on 7/13/2009 3:17:55 PM I read your first book back when I was in i think 8th grade, and let me say I wasnt much of a reader, but I could not put your book down, even for dinner. I cried the last chapter and also cried the first chapter of your second book. Your story is so sad but moving at the same time. I have recommended your book to many people to read. Its amazing that you overcame everything and you are a remarkable person.

Lucy posts on 7/9/2009 3:01:48 PM What can I say... Dave is a hero and so is anyone else who manages to live through a terrible ordeal such as the one described in his books. It totally amazes me that ANYONE could live and tell the story! Dave has inspired me so much! His story has made me realize that my life actually isn't that bad at all... I've had it pretty good and I am thankful and appreciate alot more. Thank you and carry on the fantastic work!
laura oysten smith posts on 7/2/2009 8:47:20 PM i read davids book some years ago and i still find it compelling reading even now. It is unbeleivable that abuse to children still goes on even in the 21st century, i congradulate david enormously for highlighting his experiences in his books and hope in some way that it will make parents think twice before hurting thier own children, as a parent myself i know how much a child can be a pain in the butt BUT i could never dream of hurting my son in that or any other way thanks to davids books.
Nancy Stack posts on 7/1/2009 11:03:30 PM I have felt totally compelled by your story. I heard about it years ago but just got to it this summer. I have to tell you that you mentioned a girl named Marsha Donohoe and I taught her years ago at a small Christian school. Is it possible for you to get in contact with her and ask if I could talk to her and see how she's doing. I know the family and would love to locate them again. I would appreciate it so muchBy the way, keep up the good work as an advocate for abused children. We need more of them.
Dianna Mudd posts on 6/28/2009 9:56:23 PM I recently had a girls weekend at the beach where we discussed books that had changed our lives. I was shocked to know that, not only had I never heard of your story, I had not heard about the books. One of my friends, an elementary guidance counselor, said she couldn't get through the first book. "too graphic and disturbing" she said. As a Psychiatric Registered Nurse, I was intriqued. I got the first two books and read them in two days!! Your struggle is beyond imagine. I, however, am quite curious as to where your mom is now. More so, however, I am so interested in your brothers' personalities. As I said, I have only read the first two books (so far) so, perhaps in the next books, my questions will be answered. THANK YOU for sharing your story. I am honored to have read "A Child Called IT"

Jessica posts on 6/19/2009 12:38:28 AM I have just recently read a couple of your books and I truly think that you are a remarkable person. The fact of the matter is that you endured and over came with the help of your "family" . My father endured great pain and suffering as a child, but ultimately was not able to overcome. My dad was a good man, but had an inability to show and receive love. He took his own life on April 28, 2001,he was 44 years old. He could no longer keep the secrets he kept locked up inside him. I love him and will miss him always. Take care of yourself and your family and live life to its fullest. Thank you for being a good man and overcoming. Jessica
SF mom of 2 posts on 6/17/2009 12:32:26 PM The books are inspiration. I needed to know about foster children and the system. Now I understand and if I had a bigger home, I would have loved to be a foster mother. I believe I have a lot of love and support to give to a child in need.
