 The Dance Floor Saved My Life: Beating the bullies of the past – and finding hope for the future by Christopher Brooks (creative non-fiction memoir): From the very beginning, it seemed life was working against Christopher Brooks. From his earliest childhood experiences, being placed in special needs in elementary school, and never formally learning to read or write, Christopher was encountered by one bully after another. People, circumstances, and his own decisions seemed to conspire against him. Yet through hard work, dogged determination, and his sheer force of will, Christopher persevered and even opened and operated his own car audio business despite several severe setbacks.

But it still wasn’t enough to pacify his inner demons. Ultimately, Christopher was ready to end it all—until a phone call, and a visit to Tucson’s Club Congress, changed everything.

Christopher’s raw and at times agonizing story will inspire you to fearlessly face the bullies in your life, transform your mindset, find hope in the power of who you are, and discover your dance!
