Dave Analysis and Quote from the book

1:Dave is a helpless child when his mother abuses him on the daily basis.

2: Dave dosen"t want to tell his teachers, principles that he gets abused at home. Teachers and principles want Dave to come out and tell the truth.

"Inside, my soul became so cold I hated everything. I even despised the sun, for I knew I would never be ale to play in its warm presence." -Dave


I would recommend this book to an older age group because it does contain a lot of violence and bad language. I would also recommend this book to everyone that might not understand how badly abusing is..
