Book Overview

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.

   The Lost Boy
I also read this book as well. How the relentless search from foster homes settling a child in a new family can be a challenge especially for the people who are put in charge of a kid to push boundaries to get a reaction out of the families because he wasn't what to expect from the families he was being placed with, and how their worlds are turned upside down because you can't fit in with the families or the other children in the families make trouble so the kid will leave their home to get their family back and all the kid wants is to be back with his family that is not safe.
