The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls

I just finished a  wonderful memoir written by a gracious and intelligent author. This was a wonderful read and break from my normal genre. There are a number of reviews on Amazon

I most certainly would rate this one high. I grew fond of the Dad and wish that he had the tools to deal with the issues underlying his addiction to alcohol.  My emotions were like water in a bathtub when entering or exiting; sometimes great admiration for his sensitivity and creativity but swamped by depth of sorrow for his cluelessness or choice to ignore the needs of his family.

Here was a family that homeschooled without calling it that.
