“It was 1992 when her father saw the economic collapse coming, he had two choices, the rough path or the easy path, and he chose the rough one…” Dad began. Then I interrupted, “DAD, ITS MY MEMOIR ” And then my Mom piped in and yelled, “OH MY GOD I RAISED A BUNCH OF NARCISSISTS ” Let’s try again… Meet Michaela: she’s the girl next door–except that “next door” happens to be a 27-foot 5th Wheel Trailer with no electricity or running water in the Sierra Nevada’s. At 17 she sets out to take on the world, but 10 years later, she finds herself right back where she started…in a small mountain town in the middle of nowhere. You’ll laugh and you’ll cry -sometimes at the same time- as she stumbles upon a few Mr. Right Now’s and other adventures on her quest to find love and uncover the girl she always was but had lost somewhere along the way. Join ‘Crazy Kayla’ and her nutty cast of characters for a little muddy-path Rock Crawlin’ through the true story of how her American Dream survives and thrives, in the face of life’s inconveniences and heartbreaking setbacks that sometimes leave her Teetering on Disaster.
What an emotional journey !!!
Michaela Renee Johnson has written a powerful page-turning memoir with “Teetering on Disaster”.
Kayla had such a rough complex start to life with so many turns along her heart wrenching journey. I wondered what else could possibly happen and then something else always did!
There were so many inspirational quotes that we should remember as we travel through our lives.
I thoroughly enjoyed reading this and definitely recommend it.
I received a copy of this book from the author in exchange for a fair and honest review.
