Three Little Words by Ashley Rhodes-Courter
This memoir details the life of Ashley Rhodes-Courter, who was in the foster care system from age 2 through 12, when she was adopted by a bestselling author Gay Courter and her husband. Ashley's story is a fairly typical of the flawed foster care system, but Ashley herself is very unique. She is smart, spunky, and determined the live life to the fullest. I've read a lot of memoirs, and I really liked this one. I think it would appeal to many teens. I give it a Thumbs Up!
