day 7: history/non-fiction

I read very little, if any, non-fiction, but I did read The Glass Castle: A Memoir and was glad to have done so. This memoir of a girl who grew up with two selfish, practically worthless (literally and figuratively) parents is so touching because, while being perfectly honest about the absurd way she and her sister were raised, Walls also clearly conveys that she loved her parents very much. It is that childlike honesty that makes this book so compelling.
