Summary, etc.:
"All those years you tried your best to break me, and I'm still here. One day you'll see, I'm going to make something of myself." These words were Dave Pelzer's declaration of independence to his mother, and they represented the ultimate act of self reliance. Dave's father never intervened as his mother abused him with shocking brutality.
