This is story about a little boy from the ages 4 to 12. From the time he is 5 he's beaten by his mother. She plays 'games' that he has to figure out in time or most likely die. He is forced to sleep on the old army cot in the basement. She starves him for days on end so he is forced to steal food. But the sadest thing of all is that this is a true story. This happens to kids all over the world every day. This is an amazing book that will open your eyes and touch your heart.If you havent read it sugest you do.
