  The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

Review by: Shana S.
New Jersey, Grade 10

The Glass Castle appealed to me because it basically took me on a journey to many different places throughout the South West. I liked that each separate place has many stories, that Jeanette is able to share while growing up.

I loved hearing the stories of Jeanette, a underprivileged girl, who is forced to live with the little that she owns. I liked seeing the progression of this girl, starting out poor, and becoming successful with a nice life and family. I also liked how through the entire story, with their hardships, they remained a close family, always helping each other out.
