Ah Hah! I found one. A novel I could read right through. I have attention-deficit when it comes to novels, you see. They can't seem to hold me very long. But something the way Jeannette Walls writes really pulls me in. I've read her memoir, "The Glass Castle" and her other novel "Half Broke Horses", and now this, her third "The Silver Star". She says it's a novel, fiction, but I'm sure there are pieces of her crazy childhood all over this book. Especially in the mother character.
I said it before after reading one of Walls' books: If you think your life is spinning out of control, just try to imagine what life was like for her growing up. Your life? It ain't so bad. Cozy up this weekend with a good read and really enjoy that extra hour tomorrow.
