In the book “The Lost Boy” the main character is David Pelzer. David is a very smart and brave nine year old boy. He had the courage to do a lot of things most people would not have done.
The author uses many different tactics to show the true colors of the boy. David wrote his book from a first person view so you really understand how he felt throughout the abuse.

After David his story about what he went through it made me have a lot of respect for him. In the story David is the main character. David is a very nice but weird person. He is very nice and respects just about everyone even his mother. However, he is very socially awkward. He does not have very good social skills because he is never given good attention at home.
