    --------------------

    Following A Child Called It (Health Communications, 1995), which was nominated for a Pulitzer Prize and
    appears frequently on high school reading lists, this is the second in a planned trilogy from motivational author and
    speaker Pelzer. Here he tells his story from the time he left his abusive mother and alcoholic father, through his
    experiences in five foster homes and juvenile detention, and how he eventually made it into the Air Force. He was a
    defiant, rebellious boy who, despite his background and personality, managed to endear himself to many guardians, social
    workers, and teachers. Pelzer writes in an honest, sometimes rambling, style; he is never bitter, and his story will
    find many sympathetic readers. However, he leaves many questions unanswered (which may appear in the third book),
    dealing with his adult-life relationships, his son, the mother of that child, and the ways he turned his life around.
    This is sure to be popular among students and readers who await a sequel to A Child Called It. Well recommended.?Linda
