The Glass Castle, by Jeannette Walls

I'm usually more of a fiction reader than one of memoirs, but the storytelling in this nonfiction work was captivating. What an intriguing look into the life a girl brought up by eccentric and probably mentally diseased parents who end up homeless and the girl's ability to triumph in spite of it all. It's nice to know that our society makes it possible for this to happen, though, more often than not, people like Jeanette fall though the cracks.

I would highly recommend this book.
