Pickpick

“The Glass Castle” is a touching book about Jeannette Walls and her journey of childhood and almost unbelievable experiences. Jeannettes father is a heavy alcoholic which gets in the way of the entire family and her mother is a teacher that doesn‘t like to teach and would rather chase after her dream of being an artist than be an actual parent.

Austinbelcourt Jeannette also has 3 siblings her older sister Lori who is quite easily a genius her younger brother Brian who is very capable with his hands and her younger sister Maureen who was always off with other family‘s. If you like books that are based off of true story‘s that make you feel fortunate for living a normal life then Glass Castle is the exact book you are looking for. 3mo
Austinbelcourt The point of view the story is told in is first person point of view and is established as you can tell she has a bias as someone would have been more critical to the living conditions if she was not the one telling the story, also the fact that the story is a memoir 3mo
MissYaremcio Great work! I like that you chose a picture of their family too! 6/6 3mo

Mehso-so

The book “The Glass Castle” by Jeanette Walls is a memoir into the life of Jeanette as a child. It follows her and her family very close consisting of the father, mother and Jeanettes 3 siblings. It is a moving tail about moving through hardship and never giving up no matter what happens to you. If you like books that motivate you to stop feeling sorry for yourself or a good story that is based on real events of the author you would enjoy this.

Austinbelcourt A theme of glass castle is responsibility. It is present in the film through the parents as they shed a lot of the responsibility of that regular parents should have they are acting in accordance with their non-conformist beliefs, which they see as a higher responsibility. 4mo
