White Oleander

I found this book at a garage sale for $.25 so of course I bought it. (I'm such a sucker for books!) This books tells about a young girl whose mother goes to prison, how she is put through the foster care system and all of her trouble in between including being shot by one foster mother, molested by a mothers boyfriend, used as a built-in babysitter, starved, and beaten. This book reminds us how lucky we had it as children, having a permanent home, food on the table, and loving parents.
