این چیزی بیش از داستان بقاست. But I'm going to say what I can.

Dave Pelzer, who lived with his unstable, disturbed, alcoholic mother in a town in California during the early 70's, explains his story about his torturous unforgettable years as a young boy.

It is the story of Dave Pelzer, who was brutally beaten and starved by his emotionally unstable, alcoholic mother: a mother who played tortuous, unpredictable games—games that left him nearly dead. This book was really sad.

My coach was reading it and somehow ended up reading the entire book aloud to my squad during breaks and at night. Some stories in the book contradict each other, while other stories doesn't make much sense.
