A Brother's Journey: Surviving a Childhood of Abuse : In A Child Called "It," Dave Pelzer described the terrible treatment he received at the hands of his mother and his brother Richard. Fortunately for Dave, he was removed from the Pelzer household by the time he was twelve years old. But his mother needed a new scapegoat for her alcohol-fueled wrath. Soon it was Richard who received nocturnal beatings, had Tabasco sauce poured down his throat, and was kicked and slapped to the point of needing hospitalization. Yet he survived. A Brother's Journey is the story of how one little boy found the courage to withstand years of physical abuse - and how the human spirit can triumph over even the most severe circumstances.
