Jeannette tries to fix up the home but her family is not invested in the efforts. They all seem to think that the house is damaged beyond repair. Brian and Jeannette also resume work on the Glass Castle, with the encouragement of their father. But the hole they dig for the foundation of the Glass Castle instead becomes a place for the Walls' to dump their trash, since they are unable to pay for garbage to be picked up from their home. Jeannette befriends a girl named Kathy Pastor whose mother, Ginnie Sue, works as a prostitute. When she visits, Jeannette intends to ask Ginnie Sue about her life as prostitute but she forgets and instead tells them about her life in California.
