Memior Week 4 Part 1

"Aw, now don't go get all high and mighty on me," Billy said. "Don't go and try and pretend you're better than be. 'Cause I know your daddy ain't nothing but a drunk like mine." Jeannette Walls (83) The Glass Castle.
This quote struck me as important because their family before Billy says this doesn't recognize their father's drinking problem. They don't think its a big deal and can't see that their family is being hurt by it everyday. This is the first time Jeannette recognizes her father's problem and tries to help him stop.
