A Child Called It is one of those books that is so unbelievable that you can't put it down. What happens to this little boy is outrageous! The amount of abuse that this child endures is unreal. How a child could live through this knowing that his siblings are not being treated the same way is beyond me? It is amazing that this man even survived the traumas described in this book. This is a must read for all parents and educators.
