All those years you tried your best to break me, and Im still here. One day youll see, Im going to make something of myself. --Dave Pelzer, from A Man Named DaveThese words were Dave Pelzers declaration of independence to his mother, and they represented the ultimate act of self-reliance. Daves father never intervened as his mother abused him with shocking brutality, denying him food and clothing, torturing him in any way she could imagine. This was the woman who told her son she could kill him any time she wanted to-and nearly did. The more than two million readers of Pelzers previous international bestsellers, A Child Called It and The Lost Boy, know that he lived to tell his courageous story. A Man Named Dave is the gripping conclusion to his inspirational trilogy. With stunning generosity of spirit, Dave Pelzer invites readers on his journey to discover how he turned shame into pride and rejection into acceptance.
