Author:Ashley Rhodes-Courter

Ashley Rhodes-Courter spent nine years of her life in foster care, before finding her forever family. In Three Little Words, she tells the story of that time and how she found the courage to succeed despite the odds.

It's a Hard Knock Life

Ashley is born to a teenage mom and, while she may not be in the most traditional family, she is surround by people she loves. But things begin to take an ugly turn when her mom gets a new boyfriend, Dusty, with a serious temper. What Ashley couldn't know then was how much this man's arrival would shape her future.

Oooh Child, Things Are Going to Get Easier

Ashley and her brother are soon packed up by their mother and Dusty and moved to Florida. But before they even arrive, things take a seriously wrong turn when Ashley's mother and Dusty are arrested. Ashley finds herself in the first of many foster homes, with no real understanding of what's happening. Her mother keeps telling her they'll be together soon, but when is "soon" going to come?


Here Comes the Sun

Things go from bad to worse for Ashley as she is moved from home to home. Some foster parents do their best for her, but others - especially one terrible family - are crueler than a wicked stepmother. But there is happiness - and an adoptive family - at the end of the rainbow.


The Bottom Line

Three Little Words is a touching memoir of a troubled childhood that was both exceptionally hard and extremely relatable. It's a great reminder that, no matter what difficulties you face, there is always hope. Check it out!

    How Often Do You Read Books?

    • Every day - I'm a massive bookworm.
    • At least once a week.
    • Only when my TV's broken and the Internet isn't working.
    • Hardly ever - unless it's for school.
