A Child Called It

''A Child Called It''byDave Pelzer

''... my courage took over and I stole bits of frozen food from the garage freezer'' (Pelzer 78).

Perseverance

''I had to buy time. The second hand seemed to creep ever so slowly. To keep Mother off balance, I began to ask questions''(Pelzer 42).

Courageous

''I knew she wanted me to cave in, but I held back the tears''(Pelzer 106).

''I knew Mother wasn't going to give in and open the door. To survive her new game, I had to use my head''(Pelzer 108).

''I froze in the aisle, not knowing what to do... I began to think about all the times I had been starving. Suddenly with out thinking, I grabbed the first thing I saw on the shelf, ran out of the store and raced back to school'' (Pelzer 60).

''I willed the wound to heal. Somehow I knew it would. I felt proud of my self. I imagined myself like a character in a comic book, who overcame great odds...''(Pelzer 98).

''If my brothers made any comments to me, I fired back at them. I simply told myself that I wasn't going to take anybody's...any more''(Pelzer 142).

''My hands werw shaking with fear, as tears streamed down my face...finnally I told my self,'you cry, you die.Now,take care of the wound'' (Pelzer 97).

''... that she could beat me only if I died, and I was determined not to give in, even to death'' (Pelzer 91).

''After I counted her steps, making sure she's gone, I breathe a sigh of relief. The act worked. Mother can beat me all she wants, but I haven't let her take away my will to survive'' (Pelzer 4).
