Introduction to the main characters
Conflict Part 1
The main characters in the Glass Castle are the author Jeannette, her father Rex ,her mother Rosemary,her older sister Lori,her younger brother Brian, and younger sister Maureen.
Conflict Part 2
The Walls family first lived in Blythe and afterwords they moved around the country to Phoenix,Battle mountain,Nevada,California,Arizona and Welch, West Virginia. Jeannette's family would move around the country so much because whenever things got worst like their father losing his job or they owed money they would pack one night and leave the town.
One of the main conflicts in the Glass Castle would be the father,Rex Walls, was not being able to keep a job for long that could support his family and when he would get a job he would purposefully get fired so he could continue to work on his inventions. His alcoholism had effected his life/family by not thinking realistically on how his family could become rich one day off of his ideas and inventions.
Another main conflict in Jeannette's life would be her mother having no motivation to work but instead she focuses on staying at home to paint or read books. She went to school to be a teacher like her mother but she'd rather continue her passion as an artist.
The major changing point of the Glass Castle would be when Jeannette and her siblings move out of Welch and fly to New York without their parents. Their parents later decided to go to NY but continued to be homeless as their children were successful.
The theme or the message that the author portrayed throughout the book would be based on the symbolism of the Joshua tree that Rosemary is fascinated by she says "the tree's struggle is what gives the tree its beauty". This represents all the hardships the Walls family has been through with moving around the country, living in poverty and no matter what shes has gone through there is beauty in her.
