David ePub

Oh my word, this is the best book I have ever read!! I first heard about David when I was in 7th grade. I was going to a private Christian school and my school library had the book but I didn't get a chance to read it but then I saw David on the news and on a documentary when his dad was being paroled. He is my age but I didn't know anything about the incident when it actually happened. I finally read the book just now at age 35 and WOW! I highly recommmend it.

I liken it to "Joni" by Joni Earecksen Tada. "David" will make you cry but it will make you smile too. You won't be able to put it down. It will break your heart but it will melt your heart as well. It is about a little boy's triumph over tragedy. People can be cruel but they can also be kind....David faces many obstacles in his road to recovery but God is faithful and David continually bounces back. I feel like this "little boy" (who was/is actually my age) has become a friend. I have found a kindred spirit in this child and in the hearts of the kind people in this book. There is also his mom, Marie, who is his advocate and best friend, her fiance, John, Ken & Judy Curtis—a wonderful Christian couple who introduce them to Christ, then there is the Buena Park Police Dept who work tirelessly to keep David and Marie safe, and even set up a find to raise money to pay his medical bills (!), the hospital staff who took care of him, Reggie Jackson, who took time out of his busy schedule to visit David regularly both in California and also when David was transferred to Schreiner's in Boston!!! Also the people across the nation who reached out to offer emotional, financial and spiritual support. You will feel like you have made a bunch of new friends. I could not put the book down but I didn't want it to end. I did not want to say good bye to my "new friends"! I think David is doing well today, I did see him on Larry King after Michael Jackson died and he looks good! I hope he and his mom write another book. David is a trooper and a real inspiration to others!
