Manuscript Monday: White Oleander

On this weeks Manuscript Monday Kim recommends 'White Oleander' by Janet Fitch.

In the spirit of Season Four: Books to Movies I’m including this book for Manuscript Mondays. This is a good read. I believe the movie has Michelle Pfifer in it too. But as you can probably guess, it’s not as good as the book itself. Should I tell you what it’s about? Can I remember what it’s about? Not really – I read it so long ago. But I do remember I liked it. I considered it for my book pick for season four. I’ll attach a link for a little write up – click if you’d like to know more: Never mind – He’s an excerpt from google: “The novel, dealing with themes of motherhood, tells the story of a girl named Astrid who is separated from her mother, Ingrid, and placed in a series of foster homes. It was chosen for Oprah's Book Club in May 1999, after which it became a national bestseller and adapted into a 2002 film.”
