by Jeannette Walls.
Quickie recap: Jeannette's parents are...not like other parents. They dream big, and do little. Life for their kids is precarious, at best.
Quickie review: The writing is so honest that I can only imagine how difficult it must have been to write, but the book's success has much to do with the unflinching look at a family unlike any other.
Quickie recommendation: I truly enjoyed it, and can't imagine anyone who wouldn't.
