So moving. Really opens your eyes to how severe abuse can get. Read this book in less than two days, and it left me crying at the end. Recommended to anyone breathing.

This book was so inspiring even though I could not bear to read everything that happened to this boy. But it's a must read. Especially if you're into social work, caring for children, or like good mystery (when you think he can't endure worse, he does, up until he's "rescued"). It's my ALL time favorite book for inspiration.

First I have to say this was the most amazing book I have read... I really understood the things that Dave went through, and he helped me get through my childhood abuse... mine had a lot of the same stories that were in this book, but also made me realize how much worse it could be! when I read this book it gave me the strength to get through everything that was happening. If he could live through all these horrible things than so can I. And I did! I am now 24 and have made some amazing strides in my life because of seeing that there was worse out there and that I really did not deserve to be dead as my mother and step father had told me... So Dave, if you read this, know that your strength not only saved you, but it saved me also, and I'm sure that it has saved many others out there to! Thank you!

I absolutely am insanely in love with this book it is very sad. If you like books that are sad you should read this book it is a like box of Kleenex book. if I would have to rate it from1 to 100% it would be like 150%. Seriously you guys and gals should read it.

Read the whole book in one night. Breaks your heart. Very sad. How anyone can brutally torture and abuse their own child or ANY child for that matter for years is despicable. You must be a very disturbed person to live that way.
