Letters to Our Younger Selves: Dear Jenie


Dear Jenie,

So, you're feeling stuck in your hometown of Last Chance, Idaho, where cows outnumber people, and you're forced to share a tiny room with your sister Amy, who won't let you touch her porcelain doll or her new rock tumbler.

People from all over the world pass through your town to get to Yellowstone National Park to hang out with bears and buffalos and see Old Faithful erupt. You're curious about their peculiar accents and the way they dress.

You want to be a world traveler just like them.
