The last thing Kylie wanted to see dragging up to the curb every afternoon after school was her parent's old Chevy Suburban. The thing was an eyesore and an embarrassment. What teenager wouldn't be mortified? She hated it; and she'll never forget it. But she'll also never forget the road trips in that Suburban from her family's home in Wylie, Texas, northeast of Dallas, to the rolling hills hidden beneath East Texas forests. She loved those.
