it was amazing

A MEMOIR OF JEANETTE WALL'S CHILDHOOD. SHE WAS THE SECOND OLDEST CHILD OF FOUR CHILDREN. HER FATHER WAS AN ALCOHOLIC WHO COULDN'T KEEP A JOB AND WHO MOVED HIS FAMILY OFTEN. HER MOTHER WAS AN ODD, ARTISTIC WOMAN WHO ALSO RARELY WORKED. THE KIDS HAD TO TAKE CARE OF THEMSELVES. JEANNETTE AND HER SIBLINGS MOVED TO NY WHEN THEY WERE OLD ENOUGH. HER PARENTS FOLLOWED THEM, CHOOSING TO BE HOMELESS EVEN THOUGH THEIR GROWN CHILDREN OFFERED TO HELP THEM.
