By: Dave Pelzer
The Lost Boy gives very deep emotional thoughts. It really touches your heart, and makes you think about how lucky you are. The Lost Boy is about a boy, David, who is abused by his mom at home, and sometimes his dad. Dave is surviving his abusive childhood, in several different strangers homes.I personally think this book is very good, but it also is heartbreaking listening to all of the bad things that happened to Dave in his childhood. “Leave me alone!” Dave shouted. I think this quote shows how Dave tried to survive his misery living with his mom. It also shows theme which I believe is show how strong you are to prove someone wrong.

This book is the second book dave pelzer has written about his childhood. This one isn't so much about abuse from his mother but how he survived the foster homes he was in. I give this book a 4/5 because I don't think it was as good as his first book but yet I still liked it. This book goes until dave is in his late teen years. I hear there is a book of when he is an adult. As soon as I read that one I will comment on it!
