Jeannette Walls' powerful memoir, 'The Glass Castle,' spent over three years on the New York Times best-seller list. Walls grew up in poverty with her siblings and the brilliant, unorthodox, irresponsible parents who managed at once to neglect them, love them, and teach them to face their fears. Overcoming these hardships, she graduated with honors from Barnard College and became a well-known TV personality and journalist. Her message of confronting your past and facing your fears is inspirational to all.
