Can you imagine being called IT, by your own mother? This gripping and horrifying memoir allows us to see the horrors that no one wants to talk about, domestic violence and abuse.
This story is the true story of one young boy exposed to tragedy that one can only begin to imagine. From making him breathe in toxic fumes to burning him on the stove, his mother punished him, but was perfectly normal to his brothers and sisters. It was absolutely horrible, the things that she did to him, scarring him for life. However, out of fear, he kept it a secret from everyone else, until he gathered the courage to finally run away.
This story will leave the weak in tears, and the horrible waiting for more. This intense tale tells all, and is an eye opener for those who have never experienced abuse of neglect. The reader is one with the author, and it is amazing to experience such a gripping read.
Warning: I only recommend it if you're strong enough to handle a few tears and maybe a nightmare or two. It's absolutely intense, but a worthwhile and necessary read if we hope to someday avoid this horror of domestic abuse.
