Exciting news, Wattpadders! We've teamed up with the upcoming film The Glass Castle to bring you an inspiring new challenge, and we want you to share your Literary Journey with us!

Chronicling the adventures of an eccentric and resilient family, The Glass Castle is a remarkable true story of unconditional love. In the film, Oscar winner Brie Larson brings Jeannette Walls's New York Times best-selling memoir to life as a young woman who, influenced by the joyfully wild nature of her deeply dysfunctional father (Woody Harrelson), found the fiery determination to overcome a uniquely difficult childhood and carve out a successful life on her own terms.

"I hope that seeing my story makes people think about what they've been through," she says. "I think there's incredible value in coming to terms with your story, and I hope that the telling of my story will encourage other people to revisit their own."
