I really wonder how I would have approached Glass Castle if I had read this first. However, reading Half-Broke Horses after Glass Castle made for plenty of pyscho-analysis that I wouldn't have otherwise done. There's a lot of interesting stuff going on in this book and Lily Smith is such a fascinating woman! She definitely had a "Who cares what other people think" attitude that Rose Mary undoubtedly inherits. Ahh, I could go on, but this one should be fun to deconstruct at book club... I would say though, whatever order you read them in, you must read both!
