This book was so sad. I couldn't believe that it was about a real person because the things his mother did to him were just plain cruel. I really don't know how he survived all of that.
Dave was abused by his mother. She would bash him, hold his head under water, make him eat his own vomit.
Don't let all of these things put you off because this book was a truly sad but amazing story of how he sy=urvived through these horrible things.
I don't understand how a mother can do that to her child!!
