Nearly five years after it hit best-seller lists, a book that purported to be a 6-year-old boy’s story of visiting angels and heaven after being injured in a bad car crash is being pulled from shelves. The young man at the center of The Boy Who Came Back from Heaven, Alex Malarkey, said this week that the story was all made up. It never happened.
That’s a first; a 6 year old not being completely honest and fabricating a story for attention. I understand that the suggestion that when you die there is nothing is just too terrifying for people to even comprehend. So when a six year old makes up a trip to heaven, people will line up to believe the little boy who cried Angel, just to console their unproven superstitions.
But here’s the real outrage: is a quadriplegic and none of the money went to help him. His father apparently kept it all… what a dirt bag. Many people have profited from this poor boy’s tragedy and none of the shared a dime with him. They should be prosecuted for that.
So to recap: Boy was lying… he never went to heaven… entire story is complete bullocks and the book is being pulled from shelves.
