Not sure if this actually qualifies as a true crime story, but has anyone read the book A Child Called It? It is the true story of the boy being severely abused by his mom. The boy (now an adult) actually writes this book. I can't remember his full name ~ Steven ????. There are now 3 books to his story. I have only read the first one. It will make you cry, scream and so mad that you wish you could've been there to strangle his mom.
