The memoir revolves around the author, Jeannette Walls, and her family. The author describes that her family had constant scarcity of money. The family kept on moving frequently and continued to try to resettle. It is quite obvious that it is a dysfunctional family, but the author does not condemn either of the parents. At several places in the memoir there is obvious touch of humor with a light spirited tone.

Jeannette Walls ist ein glückliches Kind: Sie hat einen Vater, der mit ihr auf Dämonenjagd geht, ihr die Physik erklärt und die Sterne vom Himmel holt. Da nimmt sie gerne in Kauf, immer mal wieder mit leerem Bauch ins Bett zu gehen, ihre egomanische Künstlermutter zu ertragen oder in Nacht-und-Nebel-Aktionen den Wohnort zu wechseln. Mit den Jahren allerdings werden die sozialen Verhältnisse schlimmer, die Sprüche des Vaters schaler und das Lügengebäude der Eltern so zerbrechlich wie das Schloss aus Glas, das der Vater jahrelang zu bauen versprochen hatte.

Now a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Naomi Watts and Woody Harrelson. This is a startling memoir of a successful journalist's journey from the deserted and dusty mining towns of the American Southwest, to an antique filled apartment on Park Avenue. Jeanette Walls narrates her nomadic and adventurous childhood with her dreaming, 'brilliant' but alcoholic parents. At the age of seventeen she escapes on a Greyhound bus to New York with her older sister; her younger siblings follow later. After pursuing the education and civilisation her parents sought to escape, Jeanette eventually succeeds in her quest for the 'mundane, middle class existence' she had always craved. In her apartment, overlooked by 'a portrait of someone else's ancestor' she recounts poignant remembered images of star watching with her father, juxtaposed with recollections of irregular meals, accidents and police-car chases and reveals her complex feelings of shame, guilt, pity and pride toward her parents.

You'll love joining Avery in the adventures of The Glass Castle where the setting from The Chronicles of Narnia meets the action from Alice in Wonderland. Avery dragged her three-year-old brother behind a boxwood bush and listened for footsteps in the brittle leaves. She couldn’t be sure which was louder—the person on their trail or her own heart, galloping like a stallion in her ears. With one hand over Henry’s mouth, Avery looked down at the nicest dress she owned. Not only had she torn the ruffles and destroyed the hem, but the white linen stood out in the shadowy woods, making her an easy target. If she survived this afternoon and made it home tonight—and that felt like a giant if—her father would demand to know why her dress was stained with grass and mud and tinged with blood.She would tell him the truth. The king is growing old and is concerned about who will replace him. His new wife wants to produce an heir to the throne. The only problem? Thirteen years ago, the king’s first wife gave birth to a son, and no one knows for sure what happened to him. Rumors swirl throughout the castle. For the new queen, the solution as simple: dispose of all the thirteen-year-olds in the kingdom. Except, it isn’t that easy. Avery and her friends won’t go quietly. Avery, Kate, Tuck, and Kendrick take charge of the underground network of kidnapped children, inspiring them to believe that their past does not dictate their future and pledging to do the hardest thing of all. . .reunite the children with the homes they left behind. When they discover that one among them might be the child of a man who wants them dead, will everything they work for be lost? The Glass Castle is Book 1 of the Thirteen series. Look for...

»Hoffe das Beste und rechne mit dem Schlimmsten!« Das ist der Rat, den Lily Casey von ihrem Vater mit auf den Weg bekommt. Fesselnd erzählt Walls die Lebensgeschichte ihrer Großmutter, einer starken, eigensinnigen Frau, die Anfang des 20. Jahrhunderts den »Wilden Westen« unsicher machte. Schon in jungen Jahren ist Lily die tragende Säule in der Familie Casey. Sie reitet Pferde zu, tritt bei Gericht auf, spielt Poker wie der Teufel und organisiert tatkräftig die Arbeit auf der Farm. Trotzdem ist das Mädchen überglücklich, als es zur Schule darf. Ein Vergnügen von kurzer Dauer, denn statt das Schulgeld zu entrichten, hat der Vater zwei sündhaft teure Rassehunde erstanden. Lily ist fest entschlossen, die elterliche Farm hinter sich zu lassen. Mit gerade mal fünfzehn Jahren tritt sie die lange Reise quer durch die Prärie zu ihrer ersten Lehrerinnenstelle an. Unbeirrt von zahlreichen Schicksalsschlägen, schafft sie es, mit Willenstärke und gesundem Menschenverstand ihren eigenen Weg zu gehen.
