Third Place Books says, "Teetering on Disaster is a funny and poignant autobiographical novel, which tells how she fought for her American Dream through the Sierra Nevada's and beyond.""My parents argue to this day that the few years we spent living without any electricity or running water and without a toilet to flush, did not have a profound affect on my being or my life. But let me assure you, at my adolescent age, when most girls had a Gillete Venus razor, apple smelling shave cream made with Vitamin E and warm running water, it did. If I'd been a bit younger, like my brothers, then perhaps I would have seen the value of the way of life my parents chose for us. The quote goes something like, "You can't choose your family." Good thing too, because I'm pretty certain that given a choice between the one I was born into and the picturesque normal American family I would have opted for the latter and then I never would have become the completely nutty, naïve, intelligent, Mercedes-driving hillbilly, small town girl living in a big city that I am today.The elements that define me began with the inheritance of a dangerous combination of genes from my Mom and Dad, and so I'm pretty sure I've been teetering on disaster since birth. But the moment which began to invent my character began the summer of 1992." Michaela Renee
