On pages 222-230 of The Glass Castle, two men showed up at Lori’s school. They were there to try to spread culture to the area. They unknowingly made Lori want to go to New York City for art school. Jeannette and Lori made a plan of how they would both get to New York within time. All of the kids pitched in with selling art, babysitting, etc. Their dad stole all of the money that they had saved up. Lori tried to make art for her to be accepted to the art school and it never worked out. First she spilled something on her portfolio and then her dad ruined her sculpture of Shakespeare. Jeannette was offered a babysitting job in Iowa and was told that they would give her a bus ticket back to Welch. She instead told them to bring Lori and give her a ticket to New York. At the end of the section, Lori Was picked up by the family to be taken to Iowa.
