A Child Called "It" / Dave Pelzer
Worth Reading, Dave Pelzer, Book Worth, Child Abuse, Sadness Book, Children, Favorite Book, Child Call, True Stories
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 book but worth reading!!!
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. I recommend it for anyone, most especially for those of us who work with children. This series is heart breaking.
(Another person wrote) One of my favorite books. 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.
a child called it.. definetly a book worth reading
Fight Club / Chuck Palahniuk
Film, Worth Reading, Book Worth, Chuck Palahniuk, Fight Club, Movie, Book Covers, Favorite, Debut Novels
Fight Club / Chuck Palahniuk's outrageous debut novel. Every weekend, in the basements and parking lots across the country, young men with white-collar jobs and failed lives take off their shoes and shirts and fight each other barehanded. Then they go back to those jobs with blackened eyes and loosened teeth. Fight club is the invention of Tyler Durden-projectionist, waiter, and anarchic genius, and it's only the beginning of his plans for violent revenge on an empty consumer-culture world.
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk It's an awesome book that contains critiques of capitalism, masculinity, and violence, that was made into a blockbuster film! -Emma Bedor, Graduate Student Communication Studies Wilson Library (PS3566.A4554 F54 1996) #FromPagetoScreen
Fight Club by Chuck Palahniuk. The fact that the movie has Brad Pitt and Edward Norton AND is directed by David Finch makes it staggering competition to the book...

The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton, one of my favorite books of all time. Stay golden Ponyboy
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.
The Outsiders, 1967 // by S.E. Hinton. "The Outsiders was a controversial book at the time of its publication and is still a frequently challenged book nowadays. This book has been banned from some schools and libraries because of the portrayal of gang violence, underage smoking and drinking, as well as strong language/slang and family disfunction. However, in many schools today, the book is part of the curriculum for middle school and/or high school" (from Wikipedia)
The Outsiders read it last year its a good book for teens

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.

Their Eyes Were Watching God - 1st book club book, great discussion
Scout and Jem Finch are being raised by their widowed father, lawyer Atticus Finch, in 1930’s Alabama. 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.
