** ...Except that his brother Richard has ''also'' written several books chronicling the abuse he suffered in earnest after David was removed by child protective services. (An upbringing spent in the thrall of a vicious, cruel manipulator like Catherine wouldn't ever warp a young person's sense of loyalty or fealty to truth, would it?) ** Except that there are several discrepancies between books, such as [[SarcasmMode minor things]] such as where he was stabbed, and the fact that several incidents were obviously made up as no one, especially not a little boy, would be able to survive them...

Added DiffLines:
** Also possibly Dave himself, if his book really is a lie, as this would mean he lied about his mother stabbing and starving him just for attention and money. However, even if the book is true, one cannot deny that his response to his brother calling him out was absolutely disgusting.

* HopeSpot: Dave has a few of these, but each of them fall through the cracks before it could be cemented. ** One example is when Catherine actually treats him kindly, but it is a trick when it is discovered that she is just faking so the social worker could leave her alone.

It was published in 1995, followed by ''The Lost Boy,'' which chronicled Dave's teen years, ending with ''A Man Named Dave,''about his adulthood. It was later followed up by a biography his brother wrote about how ''he'' became the Scapegoat after David was taken away. Another brother has claimed that ''A Child Called "It"'' is a lie and that David was taken into care for starting a fire and shoplifting.
