About this item

The author continues the story of his own child abuse, and his experiences being a foster child moving in and out of five different foster homes

Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possesions are the old, torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. The only world he knows is one of isolation and fear. Although others had rescued this boy from his abusive alcoholic mother, his real hurt is just begining -- he has no place to call home.

This is Dave Pelzer's long-awaited sequel to A Child Called "It." In The Lost Boy, he answers questions and reveals new adventures through the compelling story of his life as an adolescent. Now considered an F-Child (Foster Child), Dave is moved in and out of five different homes. He suffers shame and experiences resentment from those who feel that all foster kids are trouble and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a "real" family.

Tears, laughter, devastation and hope create the journey of this little lost boy who searches desperately for just one thing -- the love of a family.

Simply a MUST READ for everyone. The first book, "A Boy Called IT," should be read first. Then "The Lost Boy" and lastly, "A Man Named Dave." A captivating trilogy of books and Real Life, True Story reading. Triumphant!
