Liz I too enjoyed this book for what it was. I enjoyed that there was not blame, and was presented in way that that was simply the way it was. No excuses.

Joann I agree. We make what we can of our lives and she did wonderful things with hers. We need to also reflect on the fact that in spite of or maybe because of her upbringing, she became a happy and sucessful adult.

Kristy I don't know how you could go through all of that and not be so freaking angry... What a good soul, Jeannette Walls must have. Ah, I loved this book.

Ellen Gill But the parents really were not poor. The mother owned valuable land in Phoenix and Texas. She chose not to uplift her family, likely due to mental illness.
