The memoir has a linear structure, going chronologically through her life. I felt like I was definitely more interested in her story as it went farther along, however there was never a spot where I wanted to stop reading.

I am reading The Glass Castle by Jeannette Walls. This memoir gives the reader a peek into the major events encompassing in the unusual life of Jeanette Walls.

The main character is the author obviously and we follow her through her struggles growing up that even follow her to some of her adult life until she finally finds her happily ever after.
