Description
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.

reviews
      • premium: True
      • source: AudioFile Magazine
      • content: If you watch Oprah, Montel, Sally Jesse, or Leeza, this book's for you. Author/protagonist Pelzer has appeared on all these shows to discuss how he overcame his tortured childhood, first chronicled in his bestseller A CHILD CALLED "IT." The former abused child turned motivational speaker continues his saga in THE LOST BOY, which follows him from the ages of 12 to 18 as he escaped his alcoholic parents to bounce around the foster care system. His use of the tools of fiction to tell his true story embellishes his enumeration of woes and provides dramatic fodder for narrator Brian Keeler, who resists the temptation to play for melodrama, while still charging his delivery with plenty of emotion.
