The Glass Castle

After finally finishing The Glass Caste, I would have to say that it is my new favorite book. Right from the beginning it had my attention, and through the whole book I really didn't know what was going to come next.

One of the main reasons that I like this book is because it shows how dysfunctional a family can really be. If my mother was mentally ill and my father was a raging alcoholic I don't think I would even be able to think about leading a normal life. But, the success Jeannette made of her life is very inspiring. It makes you think that anything can be possible if you want something bad enough and try for it hard enough. She came from her family with practically nothing, and ended up making something of her life. It is truly inspiring!
