book review: a child called "it"

Just finished reading this book, it was a quicky.  

A very graphic and disturbing memoir, A Child Called "It" sheds light on the often secret issue of child abuse. There were times when I had to put this book aside to regain my composure; it's unbelievable that a human being could be treated this way. As horrific as the majority of this memoir is, the triumphant ending is a reminder of what doesn't kill us makes us stronger. 

I recommend this book if you're completely oblivious to abuse, but I wouldn't classify it as a must-read, it's very unsettling.
