I don't blame others for my problems. I stand on my own. And one day you'll see, I'm going to make something of myself. These words were eighteen-year-old Dave Pelzer's declaration of independence to his mother, a woman who had abused him with shocking brutality. But even years after he was rescued, his life remained a continual struggle. Dave felt rootless and awkward, an outcast haunted by memories of his years as the bruised, cowering It locked in his mother's basement. Dave's dramatic reunion with his dying father and the shocking confrontation with his mother led to his ultimate calling: 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.… (mais)

Pelzer finishes his trio of memoirs by writing of his time following high school, joining the Air Force and learning to overcome his upbringing as an abused child to become a functioning member of society. It's unfortunate that David had to gain coping skills the hard way but he has done a remarkable job in learning to manage his emotions, deal with his dysfunctional family and engage in a successful relationship with his son. It's rare that a memoirist treats the reader to the full scope of his or her journey, so this is quite a welcome resolution. I wish Pelzer the best as he continues through life. ( )

Boken är en uppföljare till “Pojken som kallades det”. Det är en väldigt sorglig och hemsk berättelse om vad en ung pojke får uppleva under sin uppväxt. Uppföljaren visar hur stark pojken var trots allt han gick igenom. Tragisk historia men som många egentligen går igenom. ( )

Very well written. I found this third part of Dave's series to be very different than the other two - leaving the theme of child abuse in the first one, overcoming child abuse in the second one to living a fulfilling and productive life and contributing to society. He lives a life that he will not live a life of pity and does whatever he can to overcome it. Well don Mr. Pelzer, you are a great esamble to us all. ( )

page turner, maar eigenlijk zo voorspelbaar, dat ik ook wel bladzijdes oversloeg. ( )
