From Booklist:

Theodore, now middle-aged, grew up with 11 siblings, an incredibly abusive father, and a meek mother. In this powerful memoir, he recalls a long history of abuse and neglect that he and his siblings managed to sublimate to the point that none of them acknowledged it until they were adults. He begins his memoir with a recollection of his father trying to kill him when he was six years old and then systematically terrorizing the family. As a teenager, he runs away and begins a life on his own. He recounts dropping out of high school, dabbling in drugs, drifting from one low-skill job to another, suffering violent tendencies of his own. A brother's inquiries prompt Wayne's memories, and he goes in search of documents to substantiate what he remembers. Reading his family's case files sets him on a recovery course that ends with a nationally televised confrontation with his parents. This is an inspiring look at surviving child abuse that may, nonetheless, be too graphic and disturbing for some readers. Vanessa Bush
