If you watch Oprah, Montel, Sally Jesse, or Leeza, this book's for you. Author/protagonist Pelzer has appeared on all these shows to discuss how he overcame his tortured childhood, first chronicled in his bestseller A CHILD CALLED "IT." The former abused child turned motivational speaker continues his saga in THE LOST BOY, which follows him from the ages of 12 to 18 as he escaped his alcoholic parents to bounce around the foster care system. His use of the tools of fiction to tell his true story embellishes his enumeration of woes and provides dramatic fodder for narrator Brian Keeler, who resists the temptation to play for melodrama, while still charging his delivery with plenty of emotion.
