A Child Called “It” by Dave Pelzer was first published in 1995. It was the author’s debut book, a nonfiction memoir.
Between the age of four and twelve, he used to be abused by his mother. The memoir tells the story of that period in his life. As the child, the author had to go through some frightening experience.
His troubles would not have ended if a teacher at school had not informed the police about the predicament of the child. He was later sent to live in a foster home, away from his mother’s atrocities.
