From tormenting his brother David to becoming himself the focus of his mother's wrath to his ultimate liberation-- here is a horrifying glimpse at what existed behind closed doors in the Pelzer home. Equally important, Richard Pelzer's touching acount is a testament to the strength of the human heart and its capacity to triumph over almost unimaginable trauma
