READING: Ik zat in een taxi toen ik mijn moeder zag die in een vuilnisbak stond te graaien.' In Het glazen kasteel beschrijft Jeannette Walls haar jeugd als oudste van de vier kinderen in een gezin dat zonder vaste woonplaats en in absolute armoede leeft. Hoe ze als driejarige knakworstjes stond op te warmen en zich vreselijk verbrandde, hoe haar vader telkens weer ontslagen werd. Hoe er nooit een einde kwam aan hun financiële zorgen. De ingevingen van haar volstrekt onverantwoorde ouders waren altijd leuk en spannend. Haar liefde voor hen was groot ? ook al stelden ze haar keer op keer teleur.

READING: Now a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson. This is a startling memoir of a successful journalist's journey from the deserted and dusty mining towns of the American Southwest, to an antique filled apartment on Park Avenue. Jeanette Walls narrates her nomadic and adventurous childhood with her dreaming, 'brilliant' but alcoholic parents. At the age of seventeen she escapes on a Greyhound bus to New York with her older sister; her younger siblings follow later. After pursuing the education and civilisation her parents sought to escape, Jeanette eventually succeeds in her quest for the 'mundane, middle class existence' she had always craved. In her apartment, overlooked by 'a portrait of someone else's ancestor' she recounts poignant remembered images of star watching with her father, juxtaposed with recollections of irregular meals, accidents and police-car chases and reveals her complex feelings of shame, guilt, pity and pride toward her parents.

READING: The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls | Summary & Analysis Preview: Jeannette Walls chronicles all the heartbreak, deprivation, humor, and love of her childhood in The Glass Castle, a memoir of growing up dirt-poor on a cross-country odyssey with her charismatic, but alcoholic, father and her codependent mother. Jeannette began thinking of her childhood after spotting her mother, Rose Mary, rummaging through trash in New York City. Her parents were basically living on the street, but offers of help were always rejected. Jeannette went home to her husband’s apartment on Park Avenue. She arranged to have lunch with her mom, who advised her to stop feeling guilty, accept her parents as they were, and stop hiding the truth about them. Taking this advice, Jeannette started writing her story. Her first memory went back to a trailer park in Arizona. At the age of three, she spent six weeks in a hospital after her pink tutu caught fire while she was boiling hot dogs with no supervision… PLEASE NOTE: This is a summary and analysis of the book and NOT the original book.

READING: You'll love joining Avery in the adventures of The Glass Castle where the setting from The Chronicles of Narnia meets the action from Alice in Wonderland. Avery dragged her three-year-old brother behind a boxwood bush and listened for footsteps in the brittle leaves. She couldn’t be sure which was louder—the person on their trail or her own heart, galloping like a stallion in her ears. With one hand over Henry’s mouth, Avery looked down at the nicest dress she owned. Not only had she torn the ruffles and destroyed the hem, but the white linen stood out in the shadowy woods, making her an easy target. If she survived this afternoon and made it home tonight—and that felt like a giant if—her father would demand to know why her dress was stained with grass and mud and tinged with blood.She would tell him the truth. The king is growing old and is concerned about who will replace him. His new wife wants to produce an heir to the throne. The only problem? Thirteen years ago, the king’s first wife gave birth to a son, and no one knows for sure what happened to him. Rumors swirl throughout the castle. For the new queen, the solution as simple: dispose of all the thirteen-year-olds in the kingdom. Except, it isn’t that easy. Avery and her friends won’t go quietly. Avery, Kate, Tuck, and Kendrick take charge of the underground network of kidnapped children, inspiring them to believe that their past does not dictate their future and pledging to do the hardest thing of all. . .reunite the children with the homes they left behind. When they discover that one among them might be the child of a man who wants them dead, will everything they work for be lost? The Glass Castle is Book 1 of the Thirteen series. Look for...

READING: This book summary and analysis is created for individuals who want to extract the essential contents and are too busy to go through the full version. This book is not intended to replace the original book. Instead, we highly encourage you to buy the full version. Jeannette Walls' The Glass Castle is a memoir of unbreakable spirit and salvation: an account of the life of a dysfunctional yet oddly vivacious family. When sober, Jeannette's father was creative and ambitious. He taught them geology, physics, and how to take on life without doubt or fear. When drunk, he was untruthful and violent. Meanwhile, Jeannette's mother was indifferent and free-spirited. She detested the concept of domesticity, and she disliked the responsibility that came with raising children. Jeannette and her siblings were compelled to look after themselves and fend for one another. Together, they endured. When they had settled in New York, their parents followed—not minding the fact that they had nowhere to stay—just so they could come together as a family once again. Wait no more, take action and get this book now!

If you're looking for the original book, search this link: http://amzn.to/2rTOflT) The story of Jeannette Walls, a woman who had to escape from her family in order to achieve true happiness. Jeannette Walls definitely lived with an unconventional family. It was a double edged sword. On one hand, her parents were talented and smart, but on the other one, they were also dysfunctional people who slowly but surely, corrupted their marriage. A mother who couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family and a father who suffered from alcohol abuse, her family environment was so negative it could only lead Jeannette down a dark path. (Note: This summary is wholly written and published by Abbey Beathan. It is not affiliated with the original author in any way) "You should never hate anyone, even your worst enemies. Everyone has something good about them. You have to find the redeeming quality and love the person for that." - Jeannette Walls The story gets interesting when Jeannette could not stand living with her parents anymore. It was time for Jeannette and her brother to fend for themselves and once they found the necessary resources, they fled from home. The Glass Castle is a story of courage, risking everything to live a happy life and that no matter how grim the situation might be, there's still a way out. An inspiring tale about a woman who triumphed against all odds. P.S. The Glass Castle is an inspiring story about some human beings, with enough determination are able to tip the scale in their favor despite how bad their situation was in the past. P.P.S.
