Since the publication of 'A child called "it"' by Dave Pelzer there hasn't been a story like this. But this is not just another harrowing story about an excruciating childhood and the ravages on a life it produces. The difference is that Mez not only escaped from his 'trial by parent' but he discovered a hope that has transformed his life. He in turn has helped others find hope in their lives. Mez's story is told with a frankness and wit that hides much of the pain and despair that was his everyday experience. Nevertheless, although his story at times may sicken you, his first brushes with the faith that restored him will make you laugh out loud! Mez's life involved abuse, violence, drugs, thieving and prison - but you don't have to fall as far as him in order to climb out of the traps in your life. Do you like happy endings? Mez still suffers from his experiences but you'll be amazed at how far you can be restored from such a beginning.

Picked this book up as a result of Tim Challies review of it and I must say that it's an outstanding read! I currently passed the halfway mark and don't want to put it down! Such inspiration following his story as I myself felt that same lonesome feeling of family and friends playing similar roles in my life. It took me a few chapters to adjust to the style in which this was written but, as of now it's grown on me and has become easier and enjoyable to read. I look forward to the rest of this book and undoubtedly believe that others should take the time to read such an awesome story of redemption! I believe anyone who reads this could take away something beneficial from it!
