Jessica Terrell lived a fantastic childhood, one that, in a novel, might seem far-fetched. She grew up traveling through Mexico with a circus, playing in a family band, was intermittently homeless, led by a father who believed passionately in finding big challenges — including building, out of scavenged scraps, a 50-foot raft on which he wanted the family to cross the Atlantic with a menagerie of animals.
Which left a young child with a very important decision to make, as she explains in this podcast from the Hawaii Storytellers’ event, “Should I Stay Or Should I Go? Stories About Making Big Decisions And Living With The Consequences.”
