He made the whole thing up to make $$. His own grandmother doesn't believe him, why should I?

I've heard of this book, but never read it. I hear all sorts of stories on the news about people who make up their "life stories" just to gain fame, wealth etc. It might be popular (this is just an assumption, I've never read it)because it's easy to empathize with the abused child. There are all sorts of books about or involving orphans or abused children (Harry Potter, Series of Unfortunate Events, Matilda, Fruits Basket and much more) and it's so easy to place yourself in such a child's shoes.

His grandma might say he made the whole thing up but I don't think that alone is proof. The wikipedia article on the book (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/A_Child_Called_It) speaks to the controversy but... regardless of any of that, this books is crazy, crazy popular so all of you who devoured this book in one night, what do you have to say on the matter?
