In my pages assigned for the “Glass Castle”, the Walls family moves into their new home on Little Hobart Street. This home is very rundown and old. Since they are still very poor all of their trash begins to collect outside, which causes many people to make fun of them. One bully in particular, Ernie insult Jeannette then goes on to attach Brian with sticks and stones. Later on, Jeannette and Brian scare him away, and are so proud of their victory they do a victory dance.
The Walls moved into their new home on Little Hobart Street.
Since they couldn’t afford trash pickup, they they started piling their trash outside.
Ernie and his gang later returned, this time throwing sticks and stones and yelling insults.
A boy from the neighborhood and Jeannette started throwing insults back and forth.
“Garbage! You live in garbage ‘cause you are garbage” (Walls 165).
Ernie and his gang started throwing rocks at Brian, then left.
“It’s worse than everyone said” (Walls 166).
Jeanette and Brian fire back at the gang and then declare victory.
