Reader recommendation: Half Broke Horses

Monitor readers share their favorite book picks.

I think Half Broke Horses is much better than Jeanette Walls's first, shocking story ("The Glass Castle") of her mother who lived on the street. "Half Broke Horses" explained to me how a dysfunctional family was glued together by one grandmother. Her strength made possible the author's survival, which remained a puzzle in Walls's first memoir.
