Recently Read: The Glass Castle

The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

This was an interesting pick for our next book club selection. It is the author's memoirs of a very non-conventional childhood with her unorthodox parents. The poverty that she lives in is appalling, but I was impressed by her drive to make something of her life and be a different person then her parents (in my family science training we call that a "transitional character").

Warning: I could have done without all of the foul language of the father.
