"The Privilege of Youth" Dave Pelzer

Book Cover

Dave Pelzer has written several books about his childhood and growingup. He has written several motivational and leadership books. But inthis latest memoir, the author shares with us growing up as a teenagerstruggling for independence and more importantly, acceptance.

The book recants the tales of a young man negotiating a course throughfoster families, high school hallways full of bullies and part-timejobs.

There is something in this book for everyone, the feeling of beingbehind the wheel of a car for the first time - the feeling of freedomand power, the challenges of new friends and growing up and apart, thepromises and hopes of youth.

Well written and gripping - highly recommended.
