White Oleander / Edition 1

This is a mean, passionate book that gripped me and has never really let go. I still think about Astrid, the main character, from time to time.


"An intelligent, sensitive person is the exception, the very great exception. If you expect to find people who will understand you, you will grow murderous with disappointment. The best you'll ever to is to understand yourself, know what it is that you want, and not let the cattle stand in your way."


“She would be half a planet away, floating in a turquoise sea, dancing by moonlight to flamenco guitar.” ― Janet Fitch, White Oleander
