Christina Taddeo | 5 comments 1.The glass castle is about a girl named Jeannette Walls and her family. Her family is constantly short of cash, food, and they often move all around the country. This family is dysfunctional and the father wastes all of the family’s money on alcohol since he is an alcoholic.
2.I would give this book 4 stars because it tells an interesting story about a struggling family who eventually overcomes their problems. At times the story could be depressing but overall it was a phenomenal story that everyone should take the time to read. Jeannette Walls had a tough life, but she was strong enough to make it through the struggles within the family.
3.“You should never hate anyone, even your worst enemies. Everyone has something good about them. You have to find the redeeming quality and love the person for that.” This quote means that no matter how much an individual doesn’t like another person, they should try to find the good in them. There may be certain traits of someone that another person may not like, but looking beyond those imperfections and focusing on the good things will take a person further in life.
4. Throughout class we have been learning about children’s stories and the hidden morals behind them. The Glass castle had some morals within the story. One of the major morals was that even through you are struggling, you have to focus on the positive things that are happening. Focusing on the positive things in life will help an individual to cope with their problems. Like the glass castle, many stories have hidden morals behind them.
5. I would recommend this book to anyone who loves to read a book about struggle. Throughout the whole novel the Walls family was struggling, but eventually they learn how to cope with their issues. Any individual that is willing to learn about a different type of lifestyle would love this story as well; this family was dysfunctional.
