    Answer:when there is no hope one will create something that will bring them hope, ' the glass castle ' was used by her dad as a glimpse of hope in a gloomy situation that Jeannette and her family were facing and it was also a way to escape reality by focusing on the idea that one day they may live in such a castle.

    Jeanette is now all grown up and she now sees the reality of life as it is and she can't be tricked anymore or believe in an idea which will never come true.

    She has also seen that her father actions or behaviour will never change as they have not been any change in her dad since she was young, he still drinks and keep them in old broken houses so she is actual facing reality that this will never happen.

    She has to take herself out or she will never come out.
