This book, "The Lost Boy", covers Dave's life until the time he's removed from the house at age 12. Prepare yourself because it's horrifying the things this poor boy went through. I simply could not put it down until I knew that David was going to be okay. I was so sad reading about what he has to go through as a foster child, especially how he just wants to be loved.

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.

Pelzer relives his life as a foster child, in and out of five different homes. There were those who felt that all foster kids were trouble - unworthy of love - and resented his presence, forcing him to suffer yet more shame. But through it all Dave never stopped hoping and searching for the love of a real family.
  • I love this book so much. While I have some problems with how "The System" was done back then, that has nothing to do with how awesome this book is. I just got really angry when his mother was able to see him and be able to know where he lived. Of course, that could of been how it was in the 70s and why was she never arrested for the crimes she committed. That's something that can't be changed, it just frustrated me. But again, this is an amazing book. Any person who works with abused children should read it because it'll make you think about how you work with children and anyone who doesn't should too because foster care should not be such a taboo. It may not be pleasant to know about what happens to children, but turning your back on it doesn't make it go away.

  • Wow. What a terrible child abuse story but what an amazing man Dave Pelzer is to overcome such horrible atrocities in his childhood and life then grow up to share his story, help others and become an award winning author and public speaker! I have all 3 books he wrote on the subject of his childhood thru becoming an adult and recently purchased "A Brother's Journey" by Richard Pelzer about one of Dave's sibling and what he went through after Dave was removed from the house and his brother took his place at the hands of a terrible, cruel monster... their Mother! This book, "The Lost Boy", covers Dave's life until the time he's removed from the house at age 12. Prepare yourself because it's horrifying the things this poor boy went through... Dave captures everything in vivid detail which makes this book a page-turner you won't be able to put down... I read his first book, "A Child Called It" in a little over one day I was so engrossed in it and needed to know what happened, then what happened next, which is how I bought this book and the 3rd in the series, "A Man Called Dave". This book I also read in a little over one day... it's a book you won't be able to put down - actually, I highly recommend you buy all 3 books because you won't be able to stop reading until the very end, when he makes it to adulthood and becomes settled in life and has his 2 loves - his wife and son. Excellent choice to buy - but like I said, get all 3... I'll comment about his brother's book once I finish reading it...

  • After reading A Child Called It, I knew I had to read more of David's story. I had to find out what happens after he is rescued from his mother's house.

    You would think that things would finally start to get easier for David now that he is free from his mother's tyranny, but they don't. He just gets a new set of problems. The Lost Boy chronicles his life from age 12 to 18, and his search for a home and for people to love him.

    Just like with A Child Called It, I read this book in one sitting. I simply could not put it down until I knew that David was going to be okay. I was so sad reading about what he has to go through as a foster child, especially how he just wants to be loved.

    Ultimately, the book ends on an uplifting note. David's courage and strength of character are to be admired. He simply never gives up! I will most definitely read the third book, A Man Named Dave. I just have to know more about David's journey. I would recommend this book to anyone. It's a fast, moving, powerful read.

  • David’s story is phenomenal to say the least. He did an amazing job of exposing the inner thoughts of a child moving from foster home to foster home while doing their best to live a good and “normal” life. His perseverance and resilience is inspiring and as a social worker, I am so thankful that he shed light on the heartache workers experience while working with foster children. Workers use an imperfect system to try and protect kids from any further trauma, and David’s story gives such a real picture of what that experience is like for the child. I would recommend this book to anyone working in child welfare and who has a heart for children.

  • This book is a follow up to Pelzer's first book. Although it's not a fun read because of the subject matter, I found it extremely worthwhile. I would recommend it to anyone seeking a greater understanding on the effect of an abusive home on a child and how the experiences they have there don't necessarily cease when they're moved to another location.

  • This book gives you an idea on how things that are done wrong to others go unnoticed for years. Some people tend to block things out of their mind and ignore the fact that some people do cry out for help. When done wrong by a family member things can become confusing and even though a person may be ill no one should have to go through life without love and emotional support. I am a firm believer that there are many toxic people in this world today and the only advice I have is to never let a toxic person have control over your mind. This book is awesome and I appreciate the author for sharing his story. When reading his books you cant help but buy the other ones. It takes courage and most of all mind control to go through what he went through. May God continue to bless him and the people who helped him through that horrible situation.

  • My daughter suggested I read "A Child Called It ". She hates reading, so I figured if she's telling me to read any book, it must be good. Boy was she right. I had a hard time reading both books. As a mother of two children, It made me sick to hear what David went through as a child. Of course I had to read " The Privilege of Youth " once I was done with " It " to see how his story ended. I wanted to meet this " Mother " myself to shove her around a little and I don't have a mean bone in my body. It made my heart hurt to hear things like this really go on to innocent babies. I loved both these books and advise anyone and everyone to read them. I loved at the end how people in his life spoke about him today and how proud of him they are. It makes me proud of him and I don't even know him.
