The Glass Castle - Jeannette Walls This book started out as my "car" book, you know, the one you pick up when you're waiting in carpool line or at the kids' soccer practice. It was easy pick up and put down, each chapter was little vignette of life in the Walls family and each little story was somewhat independent of the others. Easy-peasy.

That changed a little over half-way through the book and by yesterday afternoon I could no longer leave the Walls family in the car. I had to bring them into the house with me and I stayed up too late last night so I could get to the end.

What a story! I loved this book and I thank Jeannette for telling us her story. Just amazing!
