I loved Janet Fitch's 'White Oleander' because it was so indepth in a lot of ways. It brought readers to a life that is not always paid attention to. A life of a "fostor" child who has to endure so much... and who has a mother who is difficult, yet so beautiful in many ways. There's also so much strength in this book for it's words, it's characters, and it's format ... Janet's amazing, I couldn't just read her book once.

You know what I realized, if you say astrids name long enough, it starts to sound as if you are saying astray, because that truly was how she was portrayed in the book a stray.

i dissagree with the part about it being too discriptive...with out the vulgerness of the sexual parts in the novel, no one would truly understand the cruelty and well vulgerness.
