This book is about a boy named David who is abused by his mother. He is starved, beaten, and tortured almost to death. His bed was an old army cot in the basement, and his clothes were torn and smelled bad. He was an outcast in school and people made fun of him. David’s dad knew his wife was abusing him, but did nothing about it. David had three older brothers who were treated well and weren’t abused at all. Everyday David had to find a way to get food to survive. When his mother found out he ate when he wasn’t supposed to, she made him throw it up, then made him suffer the consequence for not listening to her. One day, David made an attempt to run away, but his mother tracked him down and brought him back home.
