The Great Admissions Reading Challenge 2: Book 41: The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle is a memoir written by Jeannette Walls about her childhood and the escapades of her unusual family. She does an amazing job of capturing the child’s viewpoint of her family’s great adventures, then her view slowly changes over time as she grows older and realizes the reality of her situation and begins to take charge of her own life and work to struggle out of poverty, clinging to her brother and sisters to lift them up with herself. A beautifully written journey of strength and joy and pain and triumph.
