I have so many books, I simply must get rid of some of them. You guys are probably familiar with the novel, White Oleander by Janet Fitch. If you haven't read it, you may have seen the movie of the same name, starring Michelle Pfeiffer, Renee Zellweger, Robin Wright Penn and Alison Lohman. White Oleander was an Oprah Book Club Selection and it's an engrossing story. He's the description of it in case you've never heard of it:
Astrid Magnussen, the teenage narrator of Janet Fitch's engrossing first novel, White Oleander, has a mother who is as sharp as a new knife. An uncompromising poet, Ingrid despises weakness and self-pity, telling her daughter that they are descendants of Vikings, savages who fought fiercely to survive. And when one of Ingrid's boyfriends abandons her, she illustrates her point, killing the man with the poison of oleander flowers. This leads to a life sentence in prison, leaving Astrid to teach herself the art of survival in a string of Los Angeles foster homes.
I'm giving away my copy of the book. It's not brand new and has been gently used, but it's in good shape and all the pages are there...lol...I just hate to throw it out if someone else could enjoy it. If you'd like to receive it, tell me the name of the last book you've read. Don't forget to leave your email so I can contact you if you win. That is all.
Giveaway ends Wednesday, April 20, 2011. Open to residents of the US only.
