The Glass Castle Summary The Glass Castle is an autobiographical story written by Jeannette Walls about her crazy, dysfunctional family. It is 288 pages long and was published by Simon and Schuster published in March 2005. Most of the characters fall into multiple categories of character types. Rex Walls, for example, is a protagonist when he gets money for his daughter to stay in college, but is an antagonist when he steals their New York money. Rose Marry Walls is the same, working a job to get the family money, but doesn’t sell the million dollar land she owns to get the family’s life back on track.
I Love Lucy Too In the classic show “I Love Lucy”, Lucy Ricardo was the title character that everyone adored. While she was a housewife and later, a mother, Lucy was also a humorous character that naively believed she would be in show business and become a star. This plot device was used to show women, in a comical way, that they should stop having ambitions and remain at home. Lucy is always getting into shenanigans, dragging her friends and husband into the mess as well, and the message the show sent was to avoid being like her. Though the show is well-loved and surprisingly modern for the time it aired, Lucy Ricardo is still seen as someone an everyday 1950’s housewife should not aspire to be.
They did not like that she lived on the ‘white’ side of the tracks and began following the Baha'is around. During these times Trudy was very supportive telling us to hang in there. She really knew how to draw people into a meeting. I admired the way she loved and supported her own children. I had the opportunity to know Phillip and Annette in Asheville.

The marriage of Don and Joan Peterson was one that might be considered a fairytale at its earliest stages. They were the all-American couple living in the picket-fenced neighborhood that everyone adored. But under the surface though, there was something wrong; something terribly, horribly wrong. Joan came from a single mother with a modest background. Through her early school years, it became quite apparent that she was brilliant.
A little rich girl falls for the boy next door, gets a whole new perspective on life through the eyes of a financially-strained, but very happy — unlike her own — family, and learns something big about herself over the course of one short summer. In a lot of ways, that is what this book is about. But, in truth, it is about so much more. The bulk of this novel is about Samantha getting to know — and fall for — both Jase and his family. But towards the end, as the publisher-provided synopsis says, there is a big obstacle that is dropped on Sam's and the Garrett's heads, an obstacle that is not overcome
She had been part of Honoria for all four years of her high school experience in the 1980’s and told me about it. She wanted to know how the club was holding up after all this time. My sleeping schedule was, quite frankly, a mess. I invested in a physical alarm clock, and it completely paid off. Every day since, I’ve woken up at 5:00 AM without fail.
