New Novel "Rescuing Oricito" by Marty Kingsbury Celebrates Animal Adoption

Cambridge, MA (PRWEB) July 11, 2014

Maya Angelou once said the ache for home lives in all of us, the safe place where we can go as we are and not be questioned.

In her new young adult novel Rescuing Oricito: The Almost True Story of a South American Street Dog, Marty Kingsbury, an animal-loving poet and playwright, offers an impactful tale about animal adoption based on her rescue dogs journey to her home.

People who have rescued animals are always proud of it, Kingsbury said. We often know the backstories of our animals where they came from and who rescued them.

Her bicultural adoption tale follows the footsteps of a South American street dog who faces gripping realities that apply to many humans: abandonment, neglect, unwanted pregnancies, hunger and adversaries.

Kingsbury, who blends her expertise in writing, human services and animal activism for the story, said she hopes to raise awareness for street dogs and the rescue effort.

An enchanting narrative that can appeal to people in all walks of life, Rescuing Oricito shares insights into survival, loyalty, respect, freedom and the meaning of home.
