|The Lost Boy|
A Foster Child's Search for the Love of a Family
Sequel to the New York Times Bestseller A Child
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.
