'I don't blame others for my problems. I stand on my own. And one day, you'll see, I'm going to make something of myself.' These words were eighteen-year-old Dave Pelzer's declaration of independence to his mother, a woman who had abused him with shocking brutality. But even years after he was rescued, his life remained a continual struggle. Dave felt rootless and awkward, an outcast haunted by memories of his years as the bruised, cowering 'It' locked in his mother's basement. Dave's dramatic reunion with his dying father and the shocking confrontation with his mother led to his ultimate calling: mentor to others struggling with personal hardships. From a difficult marriage to the birth of his son, from an unfulfilling career to an enduring friendship, Dave was finally able to break the chains of his past, learning to trust, to love, and to live.

    il coronamento di una vita

    Dave Pelzer, adulto e padre, dopo un'infanzia tragica e un'adolescenza movimentata. Un racconto di speranza, una storia che invita all'ottimismo e a sperare che i bambini maltrattati riescano malgrado tutto a costruirsi una vita normale.

    Divid自傳第三集。親生父親去世的一刻,把生命中最光輝的東西送給David。安息禮拜的當天,David仔有生以來第一次當面反駁所謂的母親。

    "I'll be the best, and somehow, some way, I won't waste my life away.If you taught me anything, you taught me that. You can hate everybody and everything on this planet, but YOU LOSE!"

    最後,他說"May GOD be with you, Mrs Pelzer, for no one else will be."

    這套書,除了是一個小孩的成長故事外,相信亦是普天下母親的一本教科書。為人母親,如果孩子心目中有的只是這樣的自己,會是何等的失敗?
