“A Child Called It” is indeed a nonfiction book. There are a couple of books written by the author, Dave Pelzer, and if you have read any of them you know this is a very good and interesting book about his childhood life. The story starts off with a happy family. His mother is a stay at home wife and his father is a firefighter. Somewhere along the way, the mother becomes an alcoholic and mistreats Dave. The abuse is immense and it seems as if his other brothers don't get that abuse. Dave gets locked up in the basement and sent to the hospital a couple of times because of his mother. Dave's life turns into hell when his father notices this and won't put a stop to his alcoholic wife and her abuse toward Dave.
