A Child Called It is an inspiring story about a young child’s courage to survive. I think it truly is a story that everyone should read and weep about. We all have our dreadful moments and there’s this one point in life where you will say, I hate my life. I think people have a poor understanding about child abuse and how it affects the child. Dave Pelzer and his story is a great way to show the world what it is really like to be in the mind of an abused child. People think that once the abused child receives therapy, their life will be a walk in the park. That’s not how it is and anyone who thinks that’s true is retarded.
It's been like this for months. It is not surprising that A Child Called It was rejected by most British publishers. Altogether, Pelzer has sold almost a million books in this country and three million worldwide. Yet even his publisher admits that Pelzer is no great shakes as a writer. Even though the book had been on the New York Times bestseller list for three years (garishly packaged for a religiously inclined middle-American market by the same people who produce the gruesomely smug Chicken Soup For The Soul series), the consensus among British publishers was that it wouldn't work here.
