Summary
After the success of his brother Dave Pelzer's bestselling memoir, Richard B. Pelzer touched thousands with his own account of an abusive childhood. In his second book, Richard reveals how the horrific treatment he endured as a boy affected him throughout his teenage years. As an adolescent, he found himself turning to drugs--even contemplating suicide--as he struggled to separate and live an autonomous life, away from his horrifying family situation. His salvation finally came when a surrogate family took him in, offering comfort, hope, and unconditional love--and, ultimately, the transformational power of forgiveness--From publisher's description
