The Glass Castle
Jeanette Wallis, the author of the glass castle, had a very interesting life. Her father was a tortured genius and made life fun, miserable, exciting, maddening, and joyous for his four children. I read it the year it came out and haven;'t read it since but a my friend is reading it and i want to give it some credit. i thought it racy, enticing, sad, and beautiful. Jeannette's reason for keeping on as a child was the hope that her father would keep his promise. Her fathers promise was that he was going to construct plans an invention: THE GLASS CASTLE. He promised to build it for their family to live in happily together.
