This book chronicles the unforgettable account of one of the most severe child abuse cases in California history. It is the story of Dave Pelzer, who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games--games that left him nearly dead. He had to learn how to play his mother's games in order to survive because she no longer considered him a son, but a slave; and no longer a boy, but an "it." Dave's bed was an old army cot in the basement, and his clothes were torn and raunchy. When his mother allowed him the luxury of food, it was nothing more than spoiled scraps that even the dogs refused to eat. The outside world knew nothing of his living nightmare. He had nothing or no one to turn to, but his dreams kept him alive--dreams of someone taking care of him, loving him and calling him their son.

A harrowing, yet inspiring true story of a young boy's abusive childhood, from internationally bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother - Dave became a slave; he was no longer a boy, but an 'it'. His bed was an old army cot in the basement, his clothes were torn and unwashed, and when he was allowed the luxury of food it was scraps from the dog's bowl. The outside world knew nothing of the nightmare played out behind closed doors. But throughout Dave kept alive dreams of finding a family to love him. This book covers the early years of his life and is an affecting and inspirational book of the horrors of child abuse and the steadfast determination of one child to survive. It is the first book in the My Story trilogy. 'His child's voice is immensely powerful and is an extraordinary testament to the human desire for survival.' Daily Mail 'This heartfelt true story of one child's courage to survive cannot fail to move you.' Heat 'It takes a personal testimony like Dave Pelzer's to bring home the horrors of child abuse - the secrecy, the shame, the struggle to survive.' Bel Mooney, Mail on Sunday 'Pelzer is able to continue his dreadful story in an admirably dispassionate style ... It is this cool tone that makes what he has to say even more compelling.' The Times

Dave Pelzer's 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 woman told her son she could kill him any time she wanted to -- and nearly did. The millions of readers of Pelzer's previous bestselling memoirs, A Child Called "It" and The Lost Boy, know that he lived to tell his courageous story. But even years after he was rescued, Dave felt rootless and awkward, an outcast haunted by memories of his years as the bruised, cowering "It" locked in his mother's basement. Desperately trying to make something of his life, Dave was determined to weather every setback and gain strength from adversity. Dave's dramatic reunion with his dying father and the shocking confrontation with his mother -- along with the discovery of her secret past -- led to his ultimate calling as a mentor to others struggling with personal hardships. From a difficult marriage to the birth of his son, from an unfulfilling career to an enduring friendship, Dave was finally able to break the chains of his past, learning to trust, to love, and to live.

The inspirational missing chapter in a story of triumph and hope Being a teenager can be a traumatic time for anyone. But when you're also being pushed between a series of foster homes, families and schools, it can be nothing short of bewildering. For Dave Pelzer, standing on the threshold of adulthood in 1970s America, his adolescence formed a crucial bridge between the shocking abuse of his childhood and the worrying world of responsibility ahead. In The Privilege of Youth, he tells the story of those years with his unique insight and sensitivity. Whilst recounting the relentless physical and emotional attacks of the high-school bullies, he also recalls the joy of exploring a new neighbourhood and encountering true friendship for the first time. Through his adventures with his new 'brothers' and their discovery of cars, girls and themselves, Pelzer introduces a fascinating cast of characters who, each in different ways, helped shape an extraordinary life and prepared him for fresh trials to come.

'The bottom line: Your life's outcome is solely up to you. If you can get out of bed in the morning, go to the bathroom, get dressed and nuke something in the microwave without any help, then you are capable of doing, achieving and handling just about anything that life can throw at you. You can do this. You can live up to your potential. And at your age, frankly, I expect you to.' Straight-talking, unpatronising, inspirational advice from bestselling author Dave Pelzer. Before he became a teenager, Pelzer was subjected to horrific physical and mental abuse from his mother. During his teens the long road to recovery began and today Pelzer spends much of his working life talking to young adults in schools and foster care centres. Pelzer’s message is simple and powerful: identify problems, face them, think about where you want to be in life and never, ever give up on yourself. Being a teenager isn't easy in today's world, but as Pelzer says, it brings with it massive opportunities - and it's much more exciting than being an adult.
