I've got three pieces of news for you.#1
The winner of the last poll was The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls
. We'll meet to discuss this book at 3:00 on Sunday, August 15.
In The Glass Castle, Walls chronicles her upbringing at the hands of eccentric, nomadic parents, who, motivated by whims and paranoia, uprooted their kids time and again, leaving them to their own devices. Though Walls has well earned the right to complain, at no point does she play the victim... In fact, she respects her parents' knack for making hardships feel like adventures, and her love for them resonates from cover to cover.
