A Brother's Journey

By: Richard B. Pelzer


Richard: Protagonist, gets abused by his mother, and is an outcast.

David: Richards brother, is also abused, taking out of the house.

Catherine: Richards mother, alcoholic, abusive.

Scott: Richards brother, Catherines favorite.

Ross: Richards oldest brother and his only friend.

Keith: Richards younger brother.


Before Richard was too old to realize what was going on, he helped his mother torment his brother, David. But when David was taken away the focus of the abuse was turned to Richard. He deals with horrific abuse of all kinds dealt out by his mother.


I give this book 4 out of 5 stars. It was a really good book but it's very repetitive.
