The Lost Boy
The way a decision feels is not necessarily indicative of whether or not it is the right decision. This theory is definitely shown in The Lost Boy. This is shown because Dave had to make a very hard decision. To live in a foster home or go back to mother. And he took what we thought the obvious choice was, and decided to go to a foster home. Throughout him being in a foster home. When he went to bed he went through hard, scary nights. He couldn’t sleep because he was constantly thinking about his mother. He was regretting the choice that he has made. And we all know that his choice to go to a foster home was the best choice for him. But after a few nights Dave is starting to regret his decision.
Ever since Dave has been at foster home he had gone out of control. The reason why he has is because he is scared. He is scared that mother will snatch him from the foster home. He has been thinking this way ever since he went to the foster home. But Dave had this little patch of hope hanging on to him. And this hope was telling him to stay at the foster home. But he isn’t a little boy. He is 12 not a 5 year old. I feel he is old enough to stand up for himself. Maybe you would disagree but that is just my opinion. But since Dave has been living in the shadow of his family his whole life, he doesn’t have the power to stand up. So instead of standing up for himself he becomes a trouble maker. And he was such a troublemaker he had to go to juvy.And he didn’t expect the scariest thing he would see would be his dad.
When Dave was with his mother his only hope was with his father. And he thought his father would never be mean to him. But when Dave got to juvy he got called down to the conference room. He was scared but when he saw his dad he got relieved. Dave thought his dad would talk about he misses Dave but he didn’t. The first thing Dave was surprised by was that his Dad was smoking. His dad never smoked nor thought about it. And the dad didn’t speak in a nice mellow tone. Instead he was filled with anger. His dad talked about how Daves act ruined the whole family. The dads intention was just to make Dave regret what he did. Dave was honestly thinking about how bad his decision.But all the readers know that the original decision he made was the correct.
