The Glass Castle

A book I recommend for summer reading is The Glass Castle: A Memoir by Jeannette Walls. It would be a wonderful book to read on lazy summer afternoons or at the lake or as the sun sets at night.

The story is about Jeannette's childhood - a very unique and adventursome childhood. The Walls children grew up in poverty and traveled from city to city because neither parent could hold own a job. They learned how to survive in spite of the choices their parents made that were often not in their best interest.

It's a page-turning book that will draw out many emotions and make you question many decisions. As a reader I was encouraged to overcome obstacles in my own life and face challenges head on.

Although her childhood was incredibly dysfuntional, the author rose against all odds. It truly is a tale of survival and one that you will not soon forget.

I highly recommend it and would love to hear if you read it or have already read it!

Please share a summer book that you are reading....
