Synopsis

Dave Pelzer Trilogy #2

Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possessions 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 beginning - 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.

Now rescued from his abusive alcoholic mother, but not free of her, Dave is placed with a series of foster carers, eventually finding a family who love him.

External Reviews

"A truly amazing story of Dave Pelzer, the little boy who was viciously abused by his mother. Again, I can’t come close to understanding the viciousness of this woman and how she could treat her own son this way. It is truly amazing that Dave survived and became successful as he did." - Goodreads Review.
