I Don't Want to Dance (Paperback)
Michelle weaves together stories of her childhood along with the trials of living in rural Idaho. Growing up, she received messaging that being different wasn't acceptable, and worse, being a lesbian was a one-way ticket to burning in hell for all eternity. I Don't Want to Dance is a coming-of-age, coming-out collection of stories written in an honest, funny, and sometimes raw manner. In her debut novel, she reveals her resilience growing up misunderstood as a daughter, friend, and eventually, partner through her poignant and relatable sense of humor. She also reminds readers relatives are part of your DNA, and family are the folks you choose and who choose you.
