White Oleander by Janet Finch - A Short Summary & Review

A short summary of the book White Oleander:

An artist finds herself in foster care, following her mother's murderous act.

My favorite Janet Finch quote from the book:

"The phoenix must burn to emerge."



Questions to ponder while reading White Oleander:


What was your mother like?

Why can't we do something about foster care?

My review of White Oleander:

Selfish mothers are hard to live with.

We are failing our children.

Art can heal a lot.
