We heard Gretchen Carlson had a whole bunch of #TBT photos for her new book, so we asked her to send us some.

She sent us 15 great shots, complete with some fun captions. From Minnesota all the way to Miss America, enjoy this exclusive look back at the life of the "The Real Story" host and new author.

You can now pre-order Gretchen's new book, Getting Real, which comes out on June 16. You'll get a bonus chapter for pre-ordering!

Plus, tune in weekdays at 2p ET for "The Real Story With Gretchen Carlson" on Fox News Channel.
