The book I read is called A Child Called It. It's composed by Dave Pelzer. The theme of the book is to keep hope alive. You should have dreams and faith to have something to look forward to in your future especially when you believe you can't go on any more. Like Dave, he felt trapped like he was never likely to be liberated. He used his fantasies and illusions every time he had been damaging to help him eliminate the pain. This is what kept this little boy alive. He had something to reach for rather than stop. The protagonist is a 9 year-old boy, Dave Pelzer. The setting mostly occurs in his mother's house. All of a sudden his mother and father started drinking and had problems in their relationship. His mother is always telling him how he ruined her life and treats him worse than a dog. He sleeps in the basement and is punished very severely when he does something "wrong" according to her. His father didn't like to argue with his mother so never really did anything. People at school didn't know what was going on. Dave felt unloved and unwanted. He was lonely and didn't have any friends. Since he only got to wear new clothes once a year, he was often made fun of. David goes through several changes. In the beginning David was a really happy child and had a perfect family. His mom was very loving and took care of those. They'd go on family trips and had a good time. Everything changed when his parents started fighting and got a divorce. His father started drinking.
