About?

I chose this picture to represent Jeanette because this quote reminds me of how positive Jeanette stayed throughout every rough time there family had. And even though life wasn't always smooth sailing for her she never gave up on her dreams no matter what anyone said.

When it comes to memoirs there is always a theme that runs throughout the story that the author wants to write about.In “The Glass Castle” I believe that theme is Believing in your dreams and doing what you want to do.Throughout the whole story Jeanette never got to do what she wanted to do. Someone or something was always in the way of her pursuing her dreams. But as the story progresses she grows up and does what she believes she can do.

Who?

I chose this open book to represent the main character because when the narrator talks it like an open book. You find out everything about the family and you like are intrigued to listen.

Although this picture has nothing to do with the story I chose this photo to represent her life and what she had went through because Each year was something new. A timeline  was what I though of when I thought of looking through someone's life.

To every memoir there is always a voice, a voice of the story and the main character themselves. In “The Glass Castle” we look through Jeanette Walls life. And we look from her childhood years, her teen years and her life from beyond the pages. From every adventure to every fight.

Symbols.

This picture that I chose is a 1956 Oldsmobile. I chose this very car to represent many others because this was the mothers favorite car that he had bought. There had been many others but since this was the Mothers favorite I thought I would incorporate it into one of the cars they had driven.

Since another theme was qall the pets that they have had I chose this picture of many of the pets that they had discovered. Throughout there life they had discovered many animals and had taken them into there home. When I think of pets all of these animals come into my mind.

The first thing that I noticed when reading “The Glass Castle” is that there were many things that were connected to The Walls life. The first symbol that I noticed was there pets. Throughout there years pets were constant but they came and went very quickly.

Where?

Through the memoir the Wall family never actually stayed in one place like normal families usually do. But instead they were always on the move. If they ever did stay in one place for a little while they only stayed for about 1 year because of there constant fear of being caught. The only ever constant thing in The Walls life was there many cars. Therefore the setting for them was on the road and in one of there many old used cars.
