The Lost Boy 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.

    " Horrible and wonderful at the same time. I can't imagine any person treating another person the way Pelzer's mother treated him. And, how he was able to survive and do great things with his life is unbelievable. One of my students tells me I have to read the third book - that it's the best. "

    " This is a very interesting, heartfelt book. David Pelzer is an amazing human being and his story has made me really understand just what goes through these childrens minds. My sister is a foster mother in Iowa and has adopted 6 of her foster children, all of them abused. I see so much of each and evey one of them in Davids story. Thank you David as hard as it was for you, for letting us in and giving us the chance to understand, if any good came from this let it be known you opened alot of eyes and hearts. I could not put this book down, it made me cry, it taught me, it made proud of this young mans effort to continue. "
