Her memoir, Three Little Words, captivated audiences everywhere and went on to become a New York Times best seller. Now Ashley reveals the nuances of life after foster care: college and its assorted hijinks, including meeting "the one".

Wonderful Book

Great stories! What an incredible reference for what foster care and adoption are like from a former foster youth and then foster and adoptive mom. I feel incredibly fortunate to have discovered this and the book that preceded it. I highly recommend it to anyone!

Absolutely Wonderful

Loved this book, as well as the first one! I have both on audio and paperback! My husband loves them too. The raw nature of both books is incomparable and I so appreciate Ashley sharing her story with the world.

This book will pull you in from the first chapter.

I thought that the first memoir that Ashley wrote was incredible but if possible this one was better! I hope she continues to work about neglected children who need homes because we cannot let these children become forgotten. Thank you Ashley for the amazing and important work that you do.

Disappointed

I devoured Ashley Rhodes-Courter's first memoir, "Three Little Words" in a very short period of time. years have past since that book was written and recorded, and I am disappointed with the editing of this new audiobook. I know that Ashley is smart and articulate, but there are so many portions of this book? that are read like they are questions? and there are pauses in. weird places.
I'll read this in print and check out her speeches, but I can't handle seven more hours of this performance. her story deserves a better edit than this.

So Great!

I absolutely LOVED this book! I am not sure if it is possible but I think I liked it even better than the first one, Three Little Words. As a Certified Child Welfare Social Worker, the contents of this book, while not surprising made me very upset and helped remind me why I got into this field!
