This book was difficult to read, the writing was not the best, he could have used a good editor, I have some doubts as to the legitimacy, and at times I literally had to put the book down and take a few deep breaths for fear of being sick Still, his details and descriptions are vague or underdeveloped at times, leaving the reader to wonder what is he talking about, what really happened, or what happened next Richard frequently repeats himself, and at times I got the feeling that he was trying This book was difficult to read, the writing was not the best, he could have used a good editor, I

underdeveloped at times, leaving the reader to wonder what is he talking about, what really happened, or what happened next Richard frequently repeats himself, and at times I got the feeling that he was trying very hard to maintain a connection to David and his book, why that is I have not decided yet Is he trying to benefit from his brother s fame, or is the connection simply the shared experience I was also really disappointed with the ending of the book, it was abrupt and left a lot of questions unanswered, too many, which makes me think a second book is coming, or was expected, like David s Throughout the book I was so frustrated I wanted to scream Having worked with abused children I know first hand how difficult it can be getting CPS involved, but this case should have been easy to prove Even if CPS wouldn t get involved there are things that could have been done to help I know of an abuse case involving a similar situation where the school staff came together to help the child The staff got clothes for the child which they kept with the nurse, every day when the child got to school she went to the nurse bathed if necessary, brushed her hair and teeth and put on clean clothes At the end of the day she went back to the nurse and went back to her tattered clothes so the parent wouldn t find out While I applaud the school staff for getting David out of the house I have to say they failed Richard miserably and should be ashamed I applauded Ben for taking Richard under his wing, thank God Richard at least had someone watching out for him, unlike David I wonder what ever came of that relationship and Ben I also hope that the brother Scott never had children I honestly do not understand how a system could fail so badly not once but twice I remind myself that it was a different time etc But the bottom line is did the authorities need a death to occur before they stepped in If they let abuse as obvious as what happened to Richard slide, imagine what else got by I guess the good part is times have changed, laws have changed, though sadly not that much because every day thousands of kids are still abused and no one helps them either Richard B

detailed in his personal memoirs, beginning with A Child Called It Richard s memoir is a must read for anyone who has been moved by the story of his brother David, as it provides an important point of view in this story of horrific abuse that of a sibling who first participated in the family s abuse of David, and then after David was removed from his abuse environment, as the new recipient of his mother s alcohol fueled rage Unfortunately, there is no dramatic resolution at the end although he is able to escape from his emotional attachment to his abusive mother, physically he was not able to escape from the nightmarish environment she provided.What is so incredibly shocking is that the Social Service system would have allowed that mother to continue to raise any children in the house after they deemed her unfit to have any contact with David Certainly, the abuse that Richard suffered could have and should have been prevented by authorities who knew better After reading A Boy called IT, A Man Named Dave, and The Lost Boy I had a lot of questions that were left unanswered For example why did Dave s mother only abuse Dave I found this book by Richard Pelzer and it was like a continuation of where Dave left off Unfortunately, once Dave was removed from the home his mother turned the abuse on to another child Richard This book explains from Richard s point of view what he went through as a child and what his mother did to him.I read the book in After reading A Boy called IT, A Man Named Dave, and The Lost Boy I had a lot of questions that were left unanswered For example why did Dave s mother only abuse Dave I found this book by Richard Pelzer and it was like a continuation of where Dave left off Unfortunately, once Dave was removed from the home his mother turned the abuse on to another child Richard This book explains from Richard s point of view what he went through as a child and what his mother did to him.I read the book in less than a day It was just as good as Dave s books, but not as gut wrenching His writing style is slightly different from Dave s In other words, if you think you will sit and cry your way through the book as I did for Dave s books , it won t happen with Richards book You still feel the pain that he went through but not like your right there living it with him as was the case with Dave I also like how some parts overlapped from Dave s books Things Dave described, instances or situations that Dave described, Richard describes also from Richards perspective.The hardest part to the reading was if you read Dave s book first as I did than read Richards book, the names of the brothers have been changed Dave used one set of names for his brothers and Richard used a different set of names for the brothers That was a bit confusing at first figuring out who is who Another view from Davids brother Richard on what went on in that abusive home with their mother monster A captivating story on childhood abuse that went on for years withthan one child involved Sad but reminds people that reading such a story makes it real and instils in one to help stop this sort of parental abuse on their children whom they are supposed to protect A very good read Contination saga of this poor family. If you ve read A Child Called It you should read this book It is told from the perspective of David s younger brother Richard who was his mother s Little Nazi when David was in the home and after David was taken away he became It.The things that went on in this home just boggle the mind I hope that something like this would not be able to happen in this day and age, that they took one child away and left the rest in the care of this insane woman is just unfathomable.This story will break yo If you ve read A Child Called It you should read this book It is told from the perspective of David s younger brother Richard who was his mother s Little Nazi when David was in the home and after David was taken away he became It.The things that went on in this home just boggle the mind I hope that something like this would not be able to happen in this day and age, that they took one child away and left the rest in the care of this insane woman is just unfathomable.This story will break your heart as Richard deals with the beatings and mental abuse from his mother but also the guilt of his part in what happened to David That any of these children grew up to be productive members of society proves the existence of the human spirit This book is a sequel of a sort to A Child Called It A Child Called It follows the true story of David Pelzer as he survives the abuse at the hands of his mentally ill, alcoholic mother David is moved from his home at age 12 A Brother s Journey follows David s brother Richard Richard becomes the new scapegoat for the mother s abusive rages after David is removed from the home This story is particularly interesting because Richard offers a glimpse of the twisted role siblings can play i This book is a sequel of a sort to A Child Called It A Child Called It follows the true story of David Pelzer as he survives the abuse at the hands of his mentally ill, alcoholic mother David is moved from his home at age 12 A Brother s Journey follows David s brother Richard Richard becomes the new scapegoat for the mother s abusive rages after David is removed from the home This story is particularly interesting because Richard offers a glimpse of the twisted role siblings can play in abusive homes He is used as a pawn in his mother s games against David, all the while knowing it could just as easily be him The story is also horribly sad, since the reader knows David was rescued from the home, yet no one offers that same escape to Richard I recommend this book if you have read A Child Called It or the other books written by David Pelzer
