Half Broke Horses: A True-Life Novel

Half Broke Horses - Jeannette Walls I loved The Glass Castle and was ready for more with Jeannette Walls second book. Unfortunately, I just couldn't get into this one. It seemed incredibly stale and lacking the powerful truth of her debut novel. I'm glad others enjoy it, because I do think she is a wonderful author. I just couldn't connect with the story or the characters of this one.
