The Phoenix Rising: A Survivor's Story is a memoir about a teacher who was emotionally and sexually abused and didn't tell anyone for 20 years. It's free on Kindle right now which is how I found it.

The Boy Kings of Texas by Domingo Martinez.

Lyrical and gritty, this authentic coming-of-age story about a border-town family in Brownsville, Texas, insightfully illuminates a little-understood corner of America. An astonishingly good read.

Ian Fraser says:
My Own Private Orchestra
(five star reviews)

Originally published by Penguin Books, the work was nominated for a literary award in '94.

'A Remarkable Memoir'

"I am simply in awe of this little gem. The writing, the imagery, the feeling . . . it's all beautifully done. It isn't easy to know that such terrible things have been experienced by anyone, but it is the realization that someone can endure those things and emerge as a human being who can assimilate those things and emerge - not unscathed, not undamaged, but far from destroyed by them - that is truly remarkable. "

Ian Fraser's brutally frank autobiography of a turbulent childhood and life in the army under Apartheid was first published by Penguin Books in 1993. The work earned a CNA Literary Award nomination in 1994.

Due to its graphic content, this memoir is recommended for adults only.
