The lost boy

Pelzer, Dave2000
Imagine a yound boy who has never had a home. His only possession are the old torn clothes he carries in a paper bag. Rescued from his alcoholic mother, he is frightened and isolated, but at last he has carers who want to help him. In this, the sequel to 'A Child called It', the author describes his life in foster care. Dave moves through five different homes and describes his heart-rending encounters with other foster parents and children, some who resent his presence, some who help him. Through it all he is pursued by his mother. Eventually he finds a life for himself, having come to terms with the terrible things inflicted upon him.
