Summary
Jeannette Walls, the former gossip columnist for MSNBC.com, chronicles her childhood, focusing primarily on the complicated relationships within her dysfunctional family. Raised by nomadic and idealist parents who eventually settled in a downtrodden West Virginia mining town, Jeannette's childhood was a rollercoaster ride. As her parents ran out of money, Jeannette and her siblings were forced to fend for themselves. Deeply hurt by her parents' betrayal, she became determined to be successful
