On the Road by Jack Kerouac
On the Road

jenwilding, August 4, 2012

A family friend who happened to be a high school English teacher gave this book to me when I was 17. It was the first time an adult treated me like a grown-up, as I recall, and it made an indelible impression. I wanted so badly to take to the open road. It wasn't until later that I noticed that the chicks in the book tended to stay where they were, while the guys were the ones traveling, but I still love the book.
