Shockingly sad, amazingly brave,
By A Customer
This review is from: My Story: A Child Called It, The Lost Boy, A Man Named Dave (Paperback)
This trilogy books are well worth the read and I read them all in a matter of a few days, it is best to read them in sequence, I was totally absorbed by them all and unable to put them down. Written from the eyes of the child, young person and young man, this individual illustrates his dispair, fear and how the abuse impacted on his life as he grew up. His struggle to develop meaningful relationships with his peers and how for many years he was misunderstood. It identifies how the authorities for many years initially failed to protect him and how his own mother had the power to convince others that he was bad (even though the school had concerns regarding his well being). It highlights the trauma and confusion of being passed from one foster home to another following his removal from the family home. His final book illustrates the amazing power his mother still endured over him and how he truely wanted her to love, accept him and be proud of him and his search for answers as to why it all happened. What an amazing strong person he is as he eventually was able to forgive the horrific abuse. Get them all and read them and thank you to Dave for your honesty and bringing the impact of child abuse to the forfront.
