The Glass Castle

Figurative Language/ Impression

"When Lori came out, she was mute and bald as an egg for the first three years of her life." (pg. 27). This is an example of what type of figurative language? What impression does the reader have of Lori?

There is a strong simile here, "bald as an eagle". This represents how fragile and disadvantaged her sister was as a baby.
