The Lost Boy
The Lost Boy | Dave Pelzer
15 posts | 84 read | 5 to read
Imagine a young boy who has never had a loving home. His only possessions 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 beginning -- 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.

🦖 Big Little Lies. We tried a book group. Lasted one month 🤣
🦖🦖 Dave Pelzer has published several memoirs that are all categorized under self help. Triggering subject matter but an amazing and powerful story well written.
🦖🦖🦖 The Lost Boy.
🦖🦖🦖🦖 I'm baaaaad about getting bored with a book, even if it's good. I'm still on vacation from books in college 😂

Not as horrifying as the first book, but the sad story continues into young adulthood. An eye opening account of the foster system and the impact that this has on a child and their future.

This true story is so incredibly moving that it made me realize I want to be a social worker, specifically in the foster care system. I have never cried so much or so often while reading a book as I did during this one. A must read. But keep tissues nearby.
