The struggle to build an authentic identity lies at the heart of Astrids life as a foster child in Los Angeles after her poet mother, who has kept Astrid isolated from the world, is imprisoned for murder.

From the Publisher:
Everywhere hailed as a novel of rare beauty and power, White Oleander tells the unforgettable story of Ingrid, a brilliant poet imprisoned for murder, and her daughter, Astrid, whose odyssey through a series of Los Angeles foster homes-each its own universe, with its own laws, its own dangers, its own hard lessons to be learned-becomes a redeeming and surprising journey of self-discovery.
Annotation:
Thirteen-year-old Astrid Magnussen has to grow up quickly when her beautiful, mercurial mother murders her lover (with the poison from oleander flowers) and is sentenced to life in prison. Astrid is raised in a series of foster homes--never losing her connection with her dominating and larger-than-life mother. As Astrid learns how to deal with her mother and her foster mothers, she discovers who she really is.
