I read this book and saw the most miserable sort of childhood that anybody could have. Upon finishing the book, I really didn't have a lot of love for the parents of the author. However, after watching the following video, I saw those parents in a new way.
And you know what I'd really like to have now? One of the pictures that Jeannette Wall's mother painted. They probably aren't in my price range now that she's famous, but I'll put it on my bucket list.
After reading "The Glass Castle", I would love to apologize to my parents for any grief I ever caused them, and I'd like to thank them for helping to make me the person I am now.
