- Walls, Jeannette. The Glass Castle. New York: Scribner, 2005.
Jeannette and her family are always struggling to find enough money to live off of. They have a dream that one day they will find gold and be able to live the lifestyle of a millionare. Even though they know that the chances that they will find gold are nearly impossible, they never loose faith and they alway remain with each other. However, her fathers alcohol problem doesn't make their economic struggle any easier.
"We fought over who got to sleep with the dogs-Tinkle, the Jack Russell terrier, and Pippin, a curly-haired mutt who had wandered down through the woods one day-becaue they kept us warm."
"We couldn't afford wood any more than we could afford coal, and Dad wasn't around to chop and split any, which meant it was up to us kids to gather dead branches and logs from the forest."
