Audreycan.com Blogger's Bookshelf: Best of 2016 featuring Two or More by Danielle James

Two or More is included in Audrey Can’s Blogger Bookshelf: Best of 2016.

In Audrey’s words: “This is a beautifully written account of Danielle James’ life, and her refusal to fit inside any box. It’s a story of her parents, her life, and journey to reconcile who she is with who others perceive her to be. It made me sit a while and think about identity and if the woman people believe me to be is anything like who I really am. I bet it will do the same for you!”
