“Better get used to it,” my father says as we pull into another shabby looking motel. It doesn’t seem so bad for me. There are lots of kids and I might make some friends. But my mother has diapers to wash and food to prepare in a cramped airless room. We drove from Chicago into Missouri, the first time west of Illinois for my parents. We see lots of farms and animals, lots of notices for cattle shows. But it doesn’t look as if there’s much else to do here. Maybe that’s why The Old Judge says small towns like La Plata need to make places where teens can go and have fun.
