Overview

This very personal memoir is both heartbreaking and highly inspirational. In it, Douglas MacKinnon weaves his astounding story as a desperately poor child and his triumphant transition from abject squalor to White House writer who now has the political influence to change the system--especially as it affects children.
With humor, compassion, faith, and brutal honesty, Douglas MacKinnon writes eloquently of the pain of being unloved and neglected, and of his victorious struggle to overcome his past. But this book is more than the story of one man's personal journey; it is a memoir with a "message." Through this message, the author not only inspires readers to move beyond their own difficulties, he also calls both political parties to task for their shameful neglect of tens of millions of Americans. You'll be riveted to the story, moved to compassion, and inspired to see the world through new eyes.
