A Child Called It: One Child?s Courage to Survive

Abstract
This is one of the best, yet saddest books that I have ever read. There are so many terrible things
out there that are happening to good people. We just have no idea. One never knows what is
going on behind closed doors. I am so lucky not to have experienced anything like this growing
up. There is so much reality in this book, but I never knew that reality was ever this horrifying. It
brought me to a realization that I have never known before. It is extremely sad that something
like this really did happen to such a sweet little boy.
