The Glass Castle

My loving husband has it pretty easy on buying me presents this coming year. My birthday was last week and this was one of my presents. However, I don't want to demean his purchase, because he did a pretty good job knowing what I would like.

The Glass Castle by Jeanette Walls is a "growing up" memoir that talks with brutal, beautiful honesty about growing up as a semi-transient. While one reviewer bashed on the "kiddie-sex", I think Walls did a good job of painting truthfully what went on in her life and family. While not all aspects of the story were good, she did a beautiful job of painting a complex story.
