Deidra WynnAugust 16 2011Dear YearbookThe book I read this summerwas The Glass Castle by JeannetteWalls I chose this book for the sake of being able tovisualize what it would be like to live as though I was theauthor myself After reading the book I thought of an awardthat I believed best suited the main character Jeannette ThusI decided to give her the award of fortitude determinationThe motive behind my decision to choose this particular award isbecause of the events that occurred in the story As Jeannettegot older throughout the story she became more determined toleave her old life that was full of clichs and create a newone She began working and used the money she earned to save upfor her departure although at the same time caring for hersiblings as her mother went to school in another stateThis isthe reason I give her the determination part of the award Soonafter her mom came back she left her home on 93 Little HobartSt in Welch West Virginia and moved to New York where shestayed with her sister and began her new lifeAs for the second part of the award fortitude I gavethis partto Jeannette because throughout her whole life she had beenable to keep her mental and emotional strength during all ofthe things that should have never happened From getting burnedwhen she was just 3 years of age to when her family didnthaveany money to feed them so Jeannette and her siblings eitherstarved for days at a time or went scavenger hunting throughthe trash and other locations Also there were a few times whena man attempted to rape her and instead of letting it happenshefought back and wonJeanette was and is a strong and courageous person who will letnothing stand in her way when itcomes to surviving and takingcare of herself and her siblings That is why I believe thatJeannette deserves the award of fortitudeand determination
