Storyboard Text

  • Jeannette
  • Lori
  • Maureen
  • Jeannette is strong. "I rolled several yards along the embankment, and when I came to a stop, I was too shocked to cry, with my breath knocked out and grit and pebbles in my eyes and mouth. I lifted my head in time to watch the Green Caboose get smaller and smaller and then disappear around the bend." (Walls 30) "I expected him to turn and walk away, but there were six stinging blows to the backs of my thighs, each accompanied by a whistle of air. I could feel the welts rising even before I straightened up." (Walls 220)
  • Rex
  • Lori is beyond her years. "We all stood watching as the car disappeared down Little Hobart Street. Lori never once looked back. I took that as a good sign." (Walls 230) " In the middle of the summer, Lori found us an apartment in a neighborhood we could afford- the South Bronx." (Walls 247)
  • Grandma Smith
  • Maureen is not used to taking care of herself. "She spent so much time with the families of her friends that she often didn't seem like a member of our family." (Walls 206) "Meanwhile, Maureen had graduated from high school and enrolled in one of the city colleges, she never really applied herself and ended up living with Mom and Dad." (Walls 274)
  • Erma
  • Rex was delusional. "Dad was so sure a posse of federal investigators was on our trail that he smoked his unfiltered cigarettes from the wrong end." (Walls 19) "When dad wasn't telling us about all the amazing things he had already done, he was telling us about the wondrous things he was going to do. Like build the Glass Castle." (Walls 25)
  • Granny Smith tried to raise the children right. "I even liked all of her rules." (Walls 91) "I couldn't believe I'd been sitting there thinking of Grandma Smith, looking forward to eating Cream of Wheat and having her comb my hair and cuss, when all along she'd been dead." (Walls 92)
  • Erma didn't know to treat her children or grandchildren. "You'd be weird, too, if Erma was your mom." (Walls 148) "'Erma can't let go of her misery, Mom said. 'It's all she knows.'" (Walls 144)
