    Jeannette Walls grew up with parents whose ideals and stubborn nonconformity were both their curse and their salvation. Rex and Rose Mary Walls had four children. In the beginning, they lived like nomads, moving among Southwest desert towns, camping in the mountains. Rex was a charismatic, brilliant man who, when sober, captured his children's imagination. Rose Mary painted and wrote and couldn't stand the responsibility of providing for her family; she called herself an "excitement addict."

    Story
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I was very mixed as to whether I wanted to continue reading this book because the story was unsettling and the neglect that Ms. Walls and her siblings endured was appalling. At some point I decided I would continue listening to find out how Jeannette Walls managed through such abhorrent conditions. She did a fantastic job of telling her story and at the end of the book I was glad I stuck with it. Jeannette Walls did a wonderful job letting us into her life and showing us that the human spirit can rise above and shine.
