The Inspirational Missing Chapter in a Story of Triumph and Hope.
Being a teenager can be a traumatic time for anyone. But when you're also being pushed between a series of foster homes, families and schools, it can be nothing short of bewildering.
For Dave Pelzer, standing on a threshold of adulthood in 1970s America, his adolescence formed a crucial bridge between the shocking abuse of his childhood and the worrying world of responsibility ahead.
In 'The Privilege Of Youth', he tells the story of those years with his unique insight and sensitivity. Whilst recounting the relentless physical and emotional attacks of the high-school bullies, he also recalls the joy of exploring a new neighbourhood and encountering true friendship for the first time.
Through his adventures with his new "brothers" and their discovery of cars, girls and themselves, Pelzer introduces a fascinating cast of characters, who, each in different ways, helped shape an extraordinary life and prepared him for fresh trials to come.
