Description

Imagine a young boy who has never had a home. His only possessions are the old torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. His only world is isolation and fear. Although this young boy has been rescued from his alcoholic mother, the 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." Answers will be exposed and new adventures revealed in this compelling story of his life as an adolescent. Now considered an F-child-a foster child-young David experiences the instability of moving in and out of five different homes. Those who feel that all foster kids are trouble-and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a real family-resent his presence and force him to suffer shame. Tears and laughter, devastation and hope: all create the journey of this little lost boy who desperately searches for the love of a family. Though many in society ridicule the foster-care system and social-service fields, Dave Pelzer is a living testament to the necessity of their existence. Whether you are a fan of the author or picking up his work for the first time, The Lost Boy is a sequel that will move you and stand alone as a shining inspiration to all.
