A Child Called "It"
A child Called "It" is an inspiring true story about a little boy, David. Even though David has brothers he is the outcast of the family and gets treated very differently. He is forced to live in the garage, and only having an old army cot to sleep on. David has chores to do everyday, gets beaten, and is almost starved to death. This book is all about his fight for survival and how he over comes everything he gets put through.
- Child Abuse
- Staying Strong
- Fighting For Survival
After David got cut by his mother with a knife.
This section had the greatest impact mainly because he stayed strong. He finished his chores after the "accident", then he had went down stairs to attempt to clean it.
I rated this book a 4.5, because it kept you interested in what was going to happen next. You wanted to keep reading to find out what will happen to him, if he will survive, ect.
Something That Was Surprising
When David's father didn't stop, or help David through any of mothers "games". At the beginning Davids father seemed sympathetic towards him, however towards the end of the book he seemed to distant himself away from David, and spent less and less time at home.
