A school teacher by trade, Marie Kontos lived the ideal California life, a happy childhood growing up with her three siblings in a large extended Greek family, a graduate of the University of Southern California, marriage to an attorney and three daughters. Now retired, Marie volunteers her time with the Assistance League and Meals on Wheels, enjoys her family and friends and loves to pass on her wisdom to her three precious granddaughters, Elle, Kate and Claire.
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. He suffers shame and experiences resentment from those who feel that all foster kids are trouble and unworthy of being loved just because they are not part of a "real" family.
Tears, laughter, devastation and hope create the journey of this little lost boy who searches desperately for just one thing -- the love of a family.
