Glass Castle

by usly9846 on May 20, 2010

This book reminds me so much of Frank McCourt's biography Angela's Ashes. The resilience of children growing up in a home where parenting is nonexistant is just amazing. One wonder's why children are even put in a home with such abuse when there are so many couples who desperately want to have children. Excellent read!


Don't Cry over a small obstacle

by MKNReader on Aug 10, 2009

I read this book for a book report project in my sophomore year in HS. Although the author's choice of words were average, she had the skill in telling stories that inspire people. After reading this book, I realized that in comparison to her life-stories, all my life-obstacles seem to be vague, to be nothing. Many may see that the author did not put any quick-to-find themes and lessons; however, she did put a lot of valuable lessons for everyone. Through her writings, I found a lot of inspirations, such as you can fight against anything with your independence, and to never give up on anything. This is a good book to read if you have any free time!
