This book disturbed me so much. The story of this boys life was so difficult to read that at points I had to put the book down. I had never heard of this case until we choose it for our bookclub. It broke my heart. It is such a testimonial to how when we feel lost we can be swayed by what we want to hear. This child suffered so much in the name of science. The entire family became a victim of this horrible doctor. How did he go on for as long as he did using the tactics he did? Thank goodness there were ethical people out there who intervened in this child's life.
