                Has anybody read The Glass Castle book?

               The Glass Castle is a  memoir by Jeannettee Walls. The book is about upbringing Walls and her siblings at the hands of their deeply dysfunctional parents. As for me, the more you understand that it's true story the more interesting it is to read. Any thoughts about it?

    @Shaunie I haven't and think that I'm not ready for that, the impression from the book is very strong, so I'm afraid movie won't meet my expectations...

    Hey @Valerialetto I didn't realise this film was based off a book. I loved the film so much so I will definitely have to read the book too. :) 
    Maybe somethings don't get better, but we do. We get stronger. We learn to live with our situations as messy and ugly as they are. We fix what we can and we adapt to what we can't. Maybe some of us will never fully be okay, but at least we're here. We're still trying. We're doing the best we can. That's worth celebrating too ❤
