    Stories like this shouldn't exist...

    I really enjoyed reading this book, but stories like this shouldn't exist. This just shouldn't even be something that needs to be written.

    I haven't read A Brother's Journey, and I probably should have before reading this, but this was still a great read. It was eye-opening to see that someone can be treated in such a manner during the most important time of their life. To be abused and neglected during the time when you're being shaped as a person is just so detrimental. I'm so glad that Richard made it through that and became something other than a broken, lost person.

    I really think educators of any age group should read this, especially. Maybe if a teacher had taken the time to figure out what was really going on in Richard's home, he would not have had to endure as much as he did for as long as he did.

    this book was very good...it was more about Richard finding himself after he was lost in the world of drugs. He doesnt elaborate on the actual abuse that his mother was doing to him like in the books by his older brother David pelzer. But I do recommend it

    Imagine yourself sitting all alone in your room with a gun to yo

    Imagine yourself sitting all alone in your room with a gun to your head. Just think of all the things that would be running through your mind at that time. That is what the  author of A teenagers journey  Richard B. Pelzer had to go through every night when he was a teenager. Richard Pelzer is the older brother of the author who wrote A Child Called It. In the beginning of the story Richard has a very bad drug addiction. He also thinks of committing suicide, he goes over to his friends house and borrows his dad's gun to end his life. Richard Pelzer never ends up ending his life. During the course of the book he must overcome and conquer many obstacles. I enjoyed this book because it made a statement on child abuse and how people should stand up for it.    I recommend this book to any teenagers going through a rough time.
