The Glass Castle is a memoir of Jeannette Walls who along with her siblings survive a harsh and dysfunctional childhood.
You can't help but sympathize with the children, and get angry at the parents for being so oblivious to their children's needs.
The authors writing is detailed in way that you can picture yourself there, her memories are truly astounding, and vivid. Describing every member of the family, what they went through, and how they lived. I loved this book, at times I was surprised at the things the parents would do, even angry, and then I was amazed at how the kids dealt with it. They vere strong and resilient. Even being able to relate on some level to each person. And then I look at my life, and how many things I take for granted, this really opens your eyes. I will never look at a homeless person the same way. I would recommend it to anyone who has children, and a family the most. This story will make you consider all that you have and how much you should be thankful for it.
