More than six million readers can attest to the heartbreak and courage of Dave Pelzer’s story of growing up in an abusive home. His inspirational books have helped countless others triumph over hardship and misfortune. Now this former lost boy who defeated insurmountable odds to emerge whole and happy at last takes us on his incredible odyssey toward healing and forgiveness.

In The Privilege of Youth, Pelzer supplies the missing chapter of his life: as a boy on the threshold of adulthood. With his usual sensitivity and insight, he recounts the relentless taunting he endured from bullies, but he also describes the joys of learning and the thrill of making his first real friends, some of whom he still shares close relationships with today. He writes about the simple pleasures of exploring a neighborhood he was just beginning to get to know while trying to forget the hell he had endured as a child.

From high school to a world beyond the four walls that were his prison for so many years, The Privilege of Youth charts this crucial turning point in Dave Pelzer’s life. This brave and compassionate memoir from the man who has journeyed far will inspire a whole new generation of readers.

    " This is a great book that goes "in depth" of youth and some of the problems that teens are facing today. Whether you agree with some of them or not is a different story, but it will really awaken your eyes to Dave's situation as a kid. "

    " This story takes place between the years of "The Lost Boy" and "A Man Named Dave". It was nice to read about the somewhat normal childhood Dave was able to have in his situation. I enjoyed the wonderful comments at the end of this book from people who got to know Dave in his teenage years in foster homes. "
