Student Narrative

I have dedicated this project to Jeannette Walls and her memoir, "The Glass Castle." This circle book is composed of glass castles constructed out of acetate; representing Jeannette's childhood dream of escaping her dysfunctional family to live in a glass castle. At the core of the book is a spine with words used to describe Jeannette's childhood experiences. The case has the words, "He promised me..."; representing Rex Wall's promise to his daughter to build her a glass castle. This promise is a delusion and her father's way of trying to cover up the family problems.
