Check out “White Oleander”

Read this years ago and loved it. I have searched for it again ever since and was delighted to find it on Google books. Astrid has a hard life, left all alone when her mother, Ingrid, is jailed for murdering her ex boyfriend. We then follow Astrid as she is moved through a series of foster homes. I love the character of Ingrid,  a complex, but inherently selfish woman. This book was made into a movie, but it was disappointing. I felt it just missed it’s mark. Read the novel instead.
