Author Info
David J. Pelzer
As his autobiographical trilogy attests, Dave Pelzer was brutally abused by an emotionally unstable and alcoholic mother until the state of California intervened. He then spent six years in foster care, after which he entered the Air Force. Pelzer has earned numerous awards for his volunteer and military service, among them the 1993 Ten Outstanding Americans Award. He now lectures on the personal growth circuit.
From the Publisher
Editors Note 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.
Annotation The sequel to Pelzer's autobiography of an abusive childhood, THE LOST BOY follows Pelzer through the California foster care system.
