  • 17 85, 5 stars This book made me cry One of the most heartbreaking things about this time period for the author ages 12 18 is that all he still wanted, despite everything his mother had done to him, was her love and to know why she treated him the way she did Ultimately, he manages to forgive both her for her abuse and his father for his neglect and I find it all so amazing This author is truly inspirational By telling his story, he teaches resilience and forgiveness and shows how the human spir [...]

  • Begun this with hesitation after not being terribly impressed by the first book in this memoir trilogy, but since it was a library book and it was fairly short, I was curious to see how Pelzer s story continued There were many issues left unresolved after the first book, and this one addressed many of them and was a vast improvement Pelzer s style does tend to the melodrama lots of exclamation points and declarations that a moment was a turning point in his future but I respect what he has overc [...]
