Day 06- A book that makes you cry

There are a lot of books I've read that have made me cry, but none have stayed with me as much as A Child Called It. I can sort of cope with the dregs of humanity in fiction, but when it's true...it just kills me to be the same species as some people. This book is not for the faint hearted, how Dave was treated, and what was done to him is not an easy read at all. It was reading this novel that convinced me to not go into social work; I knew I wouldn't cope with seeing that story over and over and not snap or beat the crap out of someone.

What book has made you cry?


  1. Oh I would have chosen this exact book! It has stayed with me an I have read it many years ago.

  2. Did you read the two that came after? Those were easier to read, Dave tells about his experiences after, and the people who helped.


Thanks for your comment :)
