It is a really sad story of what happened to Dave Pelzer as a child. This book really caught my eyes and mind, I couldn't stop reading it. I really recommend this book even though it is quite poignant.

Ladies Ladies (and gentlemen) if you are not sure you are ready for a child please use protection. There is no way on the face of this earth a child should go through what Dave Pelzer went through at his age. His books are great but heart wrenching to know that they are true stories.

My heart goes out to Dave Pelzer for what he went through as a child. Once I started reading, I could not put the book down. Not for the fainthearted..

I agree with happy76. I couldn't read a book like this. But I saw Dave Pelzer on Oprah. She had read it & asked enough questions that I got the basic story... a lot of torture, trying to escape it, what has happened since, etc. I'll never forget his telling of A Child Called "IT"

Storyline

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.
