Gut wrenching, honest and sincere narrative about a remarkable childhood. I have always embraced the difficulties I faced growing up with an eccentric and alcoholic family and Ms. Walls does an extraordinary job telling the tale without judgment or harsh criticism. She captures the essence of loving your family just because. It is a brave and beautiful book.
my first book by Jennette ....captivating.
I could connect with this book on so many levels. The students that I serve are living this life daily and it was great for me to get inside of their lives through Jeannette Walls
I enjoyed the story so much. Mostly because it just seemed so unbelievable. I found my jaw dropped on more than one occasion. How about teaching your children to swim by abandoning them in deep water.
I liked that the author was the narrator.
For people who like to learn how different a growing up be and how life can still offer opportunities
I believe even monotonously real, to be read by the star of the book adds value
