I thought my queue at the online public library was empty but then yesterday I got the email telling me The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeanette Walls had been added to my Kindle. Imagine my delight!!!
I am only 25% through but absolutely enjoying this tale of a nomad family with two very eccentric and dysfunctional parents. I don’t think the intent was to be funny but already I have read some laugh out loud moments that make me want to know this family personally. The story gives me hope for a brighter tomorrow, touches on the American dream and familial bonds that are as deep as the ocean. One can’t help but root for these underdogs.
As always, more to come.

It is! Very dysfunctional family yet relatable. A quick easy read too
