Millions of readers can attest to the heartbreak and courage of Dave Pelzer's story of growing up in an abusive home. Now this former lost boy who defeated insurmountable odds to emerge whole and happy at last takes us on his incredible odyssey toward healing and forgiveness. In this book, the author supplies the missing chapter of his life: As a boy on the threshold of adulthood. With his usual sensitivity and insight, he recounts the relentless taunting he endured from bullies; but he also describes the joys of learning and the thrill of making his first real friends - some of whom he still shares close relationships with today. He writes about the simple pleasures of exploring a neighborhood he was just beginning to get to know while trying to forget what he had endured as a child. From high school to a world outside the four walls that was his prison for so many years, this book charts this crucial turning point in his life. 230 pages. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.
