A Boy Growing Up Different (Memoir #1) (Paperback)
Growing up with divorced parents, Roger always felt a divide within his family. He saw his dad once a year as he lived far away. He witnessed arguments between his parents and stepparents and was exposed to domestic and family violence. He retreated often to his room in an attempt to escape the harsh reality of life. This is where he discovered his passion for writing short stories. At the age of twenty, Roger's family moves to the United States. He is conflicted and decides to stay in Canada. He comes out, has a boyfriend, makes good friends, and starts living the life he always thought he'd have. Until one day, depression and childhood traumas catch up to him.
