Such a sad story but what a strong man and great series. A Child Called It: One Child's Courage to Survive. By Dave Pelzer. First book in a 3 part series of a boy that survived nearly fatal child abuse. The second book is about his time in foster care, and the third is about becoming the adult he is today.
A Child Called It: One Child's Courage to Survive. By Dave Pelzer. First book in a 3 part series of a boy that survived nearly fatal child abuse. The second book is about his time in foster care, and the third is about becoming the adult he is today. Very sad and heart grabbing, but worth reading
This book is a true story about one of the worst child abuse cases in California's history. It came to an end on March 5, 1973 when Dave Pelzer entered foster care. Dave begins his incredible story as an abused child with his rescue in part one of a series, A Child Called "It". Calling this book a "page turner" doesn't give it justice. Easy to read, but difficult to comprehend how any mother could treat her child this way. Why did I choose to read this? The answer is.....a therapist needs to ... Good book!! Read it three times.. Along with the other books after it -

"The Kite Runner" by Khaled Hosseini The unforgettable, heartbreaking story of the unlikely friendship between a wealthy boy and the son of his father's servant, This is a beautifully crafted novel set in a country that is in the process of being destroyed. It is about the power of reading, the price of betrayal, and the possibility of redemption; and an exploration of the power of fathers over sons—their love, their sacrifices, their lies.

'I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings' by Maya Angelou | Maya Angelou - a wonderful author of many books - an extraordinary human being. #books #reading #MayaAngelou
I always enjoyed reading, but this was the first life-altering experience I had with narrative. Well, I guess I can't say that... but it was different. I was 19. My tastes already ran to memoir, but Maya Angelou is ... someone I can't characterize, except to say I'm humbled and inspired.
I Know Why the Caged Bird Sings, by Maya Angelou. I read this when I was 14, and it's still one of my lifetime favorite books. You can just feel Maya's soul pulsating on each page.
In memory of Maya Angelou - worth reading.
The Outsiders / by S. E. Hinton
Worth Reading, Middle Schools, Young Adult, Books Worth, Movie, Favorite Books, Great Books, Stay Golden, High Schools
S. E. Hinton, pioneer of the young adult literature genre. S.E. Hinton wrote classic coming of-age-stories that are read in schools throughout the country: The Outsiders, Tex, Rumblefish, and That Was Then, This is Now. I loved reading these books when I was in high school. My Mother, a native Oklahoman, my Army officer Father were stationed at Fort Sill (with us) twice, in his 22 year service. Knowing the area, first hand that Hinton wrote about, made the novels even more compelling.
Favorite book when I was in middle school. The movie isn't half bad either.
Read in middle school, watched the movie afer graduating high school- great movie!!
"Stay golden PonyBoy!" I loved this book in middle school!
Great book, good movie. An essential part of growing up - every kid should have to read this in middle school

One of the most important and enduring books of the twentieth century, Their Eyes Were Watching God brings to life a Southern love story with the wit and pathos found only in the writing of Zora Neale Hurston. Out of print for almost thirty years—due largely to initial audiences’ rejection of its strong black female protagonist—Hurston’s classic has since its 1978 reissue become perhaps the most widely read and highly acclaimed novel in the canon of African-American literature.

When Atticus decides to defend a black man accused of raping a poor white woman the children see firsthand how racial prejudice governs their small town and hurts everyone involved. Young and old readers alike have enjoyed Scout’s narration of the courage necessary to face adversity with dignity and the price of following your conscience.
