The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Where to begin? First, as my cousin will tell you, I wanted to slap Jeanette's father multiple times. Seriously, reach in the book and slap him. And to a slightly lesser degree, slap her mom. I mean where in the world did they get their parental skills from? I was surprised by the amount of maturity these kids had at times. Alarming really. Overall, I give them quite the kudos for surviving as well as they apparently did. I gave this 4 stars as for as much as I wanted to slap them, I thought her ability to overcome was remarkable.
