Young Astrid is very close to her single mother, Ingrid (Michelle Pfieffer) whose free-spirited, semi-man-hating lifestyle is all well and good until Ingrid meets and eventually poisons Barry Kolker, a man who romances and then spurns Ingrid. When Astrid's mother goes to prison for the murder, Astrid is left bouncing around foster care and increasingly wondering if her mother's parenting was really very good in the first place. She lives with all different types of families from Born-again Christians to posh to a youth detention center. As she grows older, she recognizes how her mother's manipulative personality has caused her most all of her life's grief. She is forced to really soul search and is left with more questions than answers, including why her mother committed the murder.

** Also implied in regards to [[spoiler:Ingrid's]] mother in the novel: there's a throwaway line toward the end about [[spoiler:Ingrid's]] mother drowning in the cow pond when [[spoiler:Ingrid]] was thirteen. It's not elaborated on or mentioned in detail, but it's very chilling when you think about it.

* NorseMythology: Astrid and Ingrid mention this a bit in the novel. Since they're Scandinavian, it makes sense.

** It's a throwaway line in the novel, but [[spoiler:while Astrid is recovering from the shooting in the hospital, a plainclothes police officer says that they got Starr when they caught her sneaking in trying to visit (said she was visiting her sister) and berate Astrid for making up a story about burglars in order to protect Starr when she's not even her real mother. No mention of a trial or sentencing, but she was arrested. Astrid only lied for Davey's (Starr's biological son) sake.]]
