I've been taping this book all week for a student at school who has had brain cancer and gone through the treatment twice. Now she's haveing difficulty with headaches and blurred vision. She has to read this book for her psychology class.
It made me so sad and angry to read about what little David had to go through. While his mother was sick and vindictive and abusive beyond belief, his father's refusal to stand up to her and get her help or have her institutionalized angered me even more. How he could just let her treat their son that way is beyond me.
The strength of this kid is just amazing!
