This was another book in the "bundle" I bought, including "Flight of the Maidens", I remember now, the whole bundle was less than the individual Margaret Atwood book in it that I hadn't read.
This story follows the teenage years of Astrid, who has been raised solely by her mother. Then her Mother, Ingrid, a poet, murders her ex lover, Ingrid is found guilty, put in prison for life, and Astrid is left to the tender mercies of the USA foster system.
The story follows Astrid from 13-18 through her various foster homes, and what she does to cope with the homes, and how she finds out who she is, rather than being a pale shadow of her mother, the poet.
