MORE THAN SEVEN YEARS ON THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER LIST The perennially bestselling, extraordinary, one-of-a-kind, “nothing short of spectacular” (Entertainment Weekly) memoir from one of the world’s most gifted storytellers—soon to be a major motion picture starring Brie Larson, Woody Harrelson, and Naomi Watts. The Glass Castle is a remarkable memoir of resilience and redemption, and a revelatory look into a family at once deeply dysfunctional and uniquely vibrant. When sober, Jeannette’s brilliant and charismatic father captured his children’s imagination, teaching them physics, geology, and how to embrace life fearlessly. But when he drank, he was dishonest and destructive. Her mother was a free spirit who abhorred the idea of domesticity and didn’t want the responsibility of raising a family. The Walls children learned to take care of themselves. They fed, clothed, and protected one another, and eventually found their way to New York. Their parents followed them, choosing to be homeless even as their children prospered. The Glass Castle is truly astonishing—a memoir permeated by the intense love of a peculiar but loyal family.

Andrew grew up in the 1970s with his funny, loving but deeply unstable mother. Life with her was totally chaotic. She left him alone in motel rooms at night and took him with her when she went house burgling. But Andrew's mother wasn't bad, she was just lost herself and one thing she did was always tell him she loved him. Gradually, though, the bad times got worse. One day Andrew, aged seven, found his mother in the bathroom in the middle of a breakdown, the walls covered in her pleas for help all written in the blood from the cuts she'd inflicted on herself. He was taken into care and put with a foster family who treated him with loneliness and neglect at best and cruel indifference as standard. This is a groundbreaking story of a childhood destroyed by mental illness. It is also a heartbreaking love story about a mother's legacy of love.

Georgette Todd's mother was shot in the head when she was a small child. Her father was never in the picture and with hardly any available or "appropriate" family members willing to care for Georgette and her baby sister, both girls had no choice but to enter foster care. And that's when life really spun out of control for the Todd sisters. In "Foster Girl, A Memoir," Georgette relives the most traumatic years of her life so to give outsiders an inside, raw and brutally honest look of what happens to homeless children in America when under the state's care. In this unforgettable debut, readers will not only learn how the foster care system works, but will discover what's going on internally when an abused child grows up in a series of stranger's homes and institutions. Edited by Toni Morrison's first book editor, "Foster Girl" is a poignant account of a spirited girl who, despite hating the life she was born into, hopes to survive long enough to create a whole new world for herself after growing up in foster care. "Some stories need to be heard, and Foster Girl is one of them-it's the honest, heartbreaking, insider's look at the foster care system we've been lacking. I wish Georgette hadn't had to write this book, but I'm awfully glad she did." -Janice Erlbaum, acclaimed author of Girlbomb: A Halfway Homeless Memoir Georgette Todd's official website: http: //www.georgettetodd.com
