Fast associates when you consider that they met at Brown college in the course of their freshman 12 months, Jessica Pan and Rachel Kapelke-Dale vowed to maintain involved after their senior yr via in-depth—and brutally honest—weekly e-mails. After commencement, Jess packs up every little thing she owns and strikes to Beijing on a whim, whereas Rachel heads to manhattan to paintings for an paintings gallery and to determine her love existence. every one spends the following few years tumbling via maturity and reinventing themselves in quite a few international locations, together with France, China, and Australia. via their messages from around the globe, they change stories of educating sessions of army males, working undefined, and flirting in overseas languages, in addition to the tough stuff: from harrowing injuries to breakups and breakdowns.
