Summary
The Lost Boy has spent over two years on the New York Times best-seller list and has profoundly influenced more than one million readers' lives. Following the tremendous success of Pulitzer Prize nominee A Child Called 'It', this book continues the extraordinary tale of author Dave Pelzer's childhood. On the verge of adolescence, Dave is rescued from his terrifyingly abusive, alcoholic mother and made a permanent ward of the court. Then the real journey begins. He is moved from one foster home to another searching for identity and family. A rebellious, defiant boy, Dave seeks attention by shoplifting, and even spends time in juvenile detention when suspected of arson. Finally, after five sets of foster parents, he finds a mother and father who love him. Pelzer--who has received commendations from Presidents Reagan, Bush, and Clinton--travels throughout the world inspiring others through speeches and work to prevent child abuse. His courageous story is enhanced by Brian Keeler's thoughtful narration.

A different perspective for me on foster experiences. There are lots of terrible things that happened to this boy but also lots of positive outcomes. It was a really good and easy listen!

Such a sad and terrible thing for a child to endure. Thankfully, and hopefully, there aren't too many children treated, to this extreme, like this. Any harm to a child is terrible, but this was horrible and inexcusable.

A real eye opener of the struggles of teenage foster children, having to learn to fit in where ever they’re placed. All while trying to grow up and mature. Very touching.
