The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls This book caused me to run the full gamut of conflicting emotions. It was extremely difficult to read at times, as I'd experienced a profound sadness and anger for the deplorable circumstances of which Jeannette and her siblings had no control. To have the ability (and courage) to lay out her history in a way that was pained yet objective despite a dysfunction sustained by parents who, even with their obvious intelligence, couldn't get their acts together, or even seemed to want to…well, that's what carried this memoir for me. It was superbly written, insightful, and drove home the point that even though we can't choose where we come from, we can choose where we end up.
