PORTLAND, Ore., June 1, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- Newsworthy Books is pleased to announce its recently published memoir, Growing Up Twice: Shaping a Future by Reliving My Past will be offered free for download on Amazon on select Pride weekends.
This moving memoir, about a gay man's decade long relationship with the at-risk son of an undocumented Latina immigrant, is a shining example of how mentoring children reshapes their lives for the better, forever.
In Growing Up Twice: Shaping a Future by Reliving My Past, journalist and documentary filmmaker Aaron Kirk Douglas, illuminates the emotional turmoil inherent in mentoring an at-risk youth. In his relationship with Rico, a fatherless foster child he meets through Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America, Douglas must face the memories and pain of growing up gay in rural Oregon without the love and acceptance he so desperately craved from his own father. His journey leads him to forge a new kind of family — the kind you create for yourself.
"...beautiful...engaging…hard to walk away from…a moving memoir."
