The Glass Castle is the journey of Jeannette Walls learning to achieve self-determination after years of neglect and mental abuse from her borderline bipolar mother and alcoholic father. Their unreliability caused her to take ahold of her destiny and break the cycle of poverty and glass ceiling over women in the society of that time.

Hudson Her ascent to success after leaving the small, impoverished town of Welch for the big and opportunistic city of New York. Her hard working and determined mindset, molded by her trauma, led to her fulfilling the great destiny God set out for her. 3mo
Hudson If you like books that center around breaking glass ceilings then you will love this book! 3mo
Hudson This book is written in first person point of view. It is established by retelling her experiences without hindsight. Jeanette Walls only tells us her thoughts at the time of the events rather than her reflective thoughts. I makes the story much more captivating because it has us wondering what is next to come and feel like we too are living through these challenges. 3mo
MissYaremcio Nicely done Hudson! Thanks for catching on to the “glass ceiling“ message! 6/6 3mo

The Glass Castle is an autobiographical novel about the author, Jeannette Walls, and her impoverished childhood. The book follows the inconceivable events of her life which she re-tells in a detached and unbothered manner. We as the reader begin to understand how dysfunctional her life and family truly were, and how these traumatic events were interpreted through the innocent scope of a child.

Hudson If you like books that deepen your understanding of the problems “the average joe” experiences in poverty, I would recommend you give The Glass Castle a try. 4mo
Hudson A common theme in this novel is coming of age. In the book we see Jeanette having to set aside her blissful innocence at a young age in order to endure the difficult realities that loom over her life. 4mo
