The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls Jeannette Walls was incredibly brave to tell such an honest version of her childhood that was poor but rich in adventure, heartbreaking but often humorous, and highly dysfunctional but surrounded with loving siblings. The Glass Castle tells the true story of the Walls family upbringing, consisting of Mom and Dad and four intelligent children. Mom is an artist and unwilling to take real responsibility for the Walls children and Dad is a brainy alcoholic that relies on clever ways of feeding his family. From the deserts of Phoenix, sleeping under the stars, to the hills of West Virginia, in a home without indoor plumbing, the Walls children learn to become self sufficient, inventive, and eventually plot their escape to New York City.
