The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

This is one of all-time my favorite memoirs too! I love the Book Challenge list too.

For years I’ve been telling people this is my favourite book, and recommending that they read it. I am so glad that it held up on my second read. I still love this book. I will always love this book. It’s especially well-written, the Walls family reads like a cast of fictional characters too incredible to believe, and the ingenuity and resilience of Jeannette and her siblings continues to be nothing less than marvellous. I don’t usually read books more than once, but this is one that I will continue to read, and continue to share.

No. 24 on my challenge. If you’ve been following my reviews from the beginning, you’ll understand why.
