When they moved to Little Hobart Street dad, said that this was the perfect place to build his glass castle. He wouldn't do anything around the house, He said that the Glass Castle needed a goof foundation. He wouldn't even break ground so Jeannette and Brian decided to help him out and make a hole for the foundation. They made the hole than the house started filling up with garbge and smelling bad, the kids told Rosemary and she said to throw it in the hole, the kids said that it was for the Glass Castle but she said that it would only be for a bit. Then a rat appered, It was huge, it ate whatever; they caught it eating the sudar and threw a scilet at it and it hissed and went away. Then when they went to bed Maureen siad that she could hear it coming closer to her and when they turned on the lights it was near her face. They tried to kill it, it fell down and the dog caught it and killed it. Some guy on the street liked Jeannette but he was way too old for her and she know it. Then she went over to someones house to see if things she had heard about that persons house, but when she got there she did other things and forgot what she was going over there for.
The kids are digging a hole for the Glass Castle their father, Rex, is supposed to build. It soon gets filled with garbage instead cause the house is full of it and starting to stink.
A huge river rat has came into their home due to the smell of the garbage. They have an encounter with the rat. When they go to bed Maureen says that she hears the rat, and she does and when the lights turn on it is in her face.
The hole was begging to fill, Rosemary said to enlarge it and that was the end of the garbage pit filling up
