A book that you wish more people would’ve read
The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
This is a really moving memoir that I normally wouldn’t have been drawn to. I typically stay away from nonfiction, especially with such a sad plot, but I read this for extra credit in high school. A lot of people faked their way through the assignment to get their extra credit but didn’t actually read it. I grew up in a pretty wealthy and privileged Connecticut town where people tend to live in a bubble. This book shares a family’s plight with poverty, which would have really opened up some eyes. I wish more people gave it a chance instead of using the typical high school attitude against reading assignments. In general, I hope some other people in the blogging world also switch things up and read this one if they haven’t already!
I grabbed this book at a library book sale last month. I started reading it that day and really liked it what I read of it. I have a thing for tragic home lives/family issues. 🙂
You’ll definitely like it – so powerful.
