Richard Bryan Pelzer (born June 16, 1965) is an American public speaker, memoirist and author. He is the author of A Brother's Journey and its follow up, A Teenager's Journey. Pelzer is the fourth of five sons of Stephen Pelzer and Catherine Roerva. He received his bachelor's degree in child and adolescent development from Southern New Hampshire University in 2015. He is divorced with four children.

Is Pelzer piggybacking on the success of his older brother Dave's story of being abused, A Child Called It (1995)? Maybe, but Richard certainly has his own tragic tale.

Books this ingenious don’t come along very often. Michael Connelly Learn more. Is Pelzer piggybacking on the success of his older brother Dave's story of being abused, A Child Called It (1995)? Maybe, but Richard certainly has his own tragic tale. Most of his grim recollections are from the time after Dave was removed from the household by social services, leaving Richard, then 8, as the focus for their alcoholic mother's rage.

I believe Richard Pelzer wrote this book to ride on his brother's coattails and try to help extinguish his guilt from when he was a child. Shame on you, Richard Pelzer.

As most everyone else, I first read "A Child Called It," as well as David Pelzer's other two, and recommend making those a prequel to this one, although this book is certainly special enough to stand on its own! The abuse that both boys endured is heart breaking. It is a miracle that they both lived to share their stories. It is interesting that in the end, neither David nor Richard gave up on God, although both boys felt at times that God (unsure if there was one) had forsaken them.

I do not agree with the criticism that David's books were better written than Richard's. "A Brother's Journey" is excellent in content as well as structure. I even liked the ending. Having said that, I am hoping that Richard finds it in him to write another.

As terrible a life these children had I wonder about their lives today and the relationships they have with each other, their spouses/significant others, and their own children if they have any. How do you get past the hurt and hatred they must have of their mom, their dad, each other, and the people who were aware that things were not right? My heart goes out to these boys, now men, and pray that they are allowing God to use them to help others.

For those of you who have been directed here after reading some of Dave Pelzer's books, (as I have been) you will be pleased with the quality and story of Dave's younger brother (and little tormentor). Richard picks up the story of what occurs in the Pelzer home after Dave is rescued by social services, leaving their Mom with no outlet for her drinking.
The abuse he has to go through (though no where close to that of David's) will make you wonder how it's possible to survive a childhood as miserable as his and nonetheless turn out to be a productive, emotionally stable individual.

The story has it's moments of inspiration and times when we all root for Richard and are thankful for his small encounters of happiness, but for the most it has helped me understand some of what abused children go through day-to-day and the resilience the human spirit/soul contains.
Reading this memoir has made me focus on counting my many blessings. I hope it will do the same to you.

I read a boy called it and cried through that entire book and never forgot about David and now I cried so much throughout this book an I won't forget about you. I also was a child of severe abuse and went myself in the middle 80`s to the police station to ask for help when the police office at th front desk told me Togo home and stop misbehaving and I won't get me add whooped anymore. I was floored mind you I was standing there with a brand new cast on my arm from the beating I received the night before from my loving father.
I hope an pray you have found peace for yourself I hope you have found David and have been able to have a relationship with him now that your adults. I will have you both in my prayers. God Bless you.
I will recommend this book to everyone I know .

Richard wasn't able to pull up to the high bar that Dave set with his series, but he still managed to put out a very interesting read. It was nice to see a different perspective. I enjoyed getting a fuller picture of the family and hearing Richard's story. The only downside is that Dave didn't use real names in his book, so it was hard to remember which brother was which when reading this book.

What Richard and David went though at the hands of their disgusting excuse for a mother is nothing short of horrendous. This book (as well as David's 3) are based on the actual childhood of the author. This book details what life in the Pelzer household was like after David had escaped. With the object of his mothers wrath out of her reach her sadistic attention turned to Richard.

I highly reccomend this (as well as David Pelzer's books). If nothing else this will open your eyes and make you realize that no matter how bad you thought you had it as a kid, it could have been much worse.

I read this book and "A teenage Journey" by Richard Pelzer along with all of David Pelzer's books. Glad I read all of them, it really helps to understand dysfunctional family dynamics. The second oldest brother was enmeshed with his mother and became her partner rather than her son. Interesting to look in on this family.

This is a very well written account of a second victim in the Pelzer family. The tragedy of this family is better understood after reading Richard Pelzer's book - it's like the other side of the same coin. I've read Dave Pelzer's books, which are also very well written, and this one by Richard explains so much of what is not known about the family dynamics in Dave's books.

He explains why he intentionally antagonized Dave's situation and how it felt to become the replacement. He also helped us to see what drove his mother and how Dave must have felt when he was the victim and still in the home. I went from having no empathy whatsoever for Richard to truly understanding the horrific life he also endured. His abuse was different from Dave's in some respects, but it was also increasingly severe as it progressed and was also horrific. That either of these boys survived to become men able to tell their story is truly amazing.

To read about the specifics of abuse from the victim(s) and the feelings and thoughts they had at the time is truly eye opening. It helps us all to realize that these things really are happening, that they are probably worse than what we suspect, and why the victim isn't able to help themself or even tell anyone what is happening to them. These men both have a horrible life story to share, and if just the act of writing their story is healing for them, something has been accomplished. I wish both of them peace and freedom from their past.
