    This book is very likely made up from start to finish The events in it read like Pelzer imagined the worst child abuse possible and then said And it all happened to me Yeah right His brother and grandmother said in an interview that it was all rubbish too which casts doubt upon the whole thing Pelzer also bought his own book in bulk so the sales numbers would put it on the bestseller list he just doesn't have a whole lot of credibility Perhaps worse than the fact that Pelzer is shall we say probably somewhat fluid with the truth is the fact that he's a dreadful writer I no longer own the book didn't put it through a shredder like I did with A Million Little Pieces but I got rid of it as quickly as I could so I can't list any examples here but I do recall that I've seen better writing in sixth grade themesAfter deleting I don't know how many comments calling me names I'm adding this note because it will save both me and a bunch of other people from wasting time I'll delete any comments that I consider abusive or that I think constitute ad hominem arguments so do keep that in mind if you're thinking about composing a long screed Thanks
