Okay, so for the teens out there who dare to put down their iPhones and other tech-toys, I'm recommending "Three Little Words" by Ashley Rhodes-Courter. This is a memoir that tells the story of a young girl's struggle to survive in Florida's Foster Care System while holding onto the hope of having a home with her mother. This book will make you laugh, cry, fume with anger and cheer at a realistic, yet happy ending.
A fifteen-year-old drug user chronicles her daily struggle to
escape the pull of the drug world. Published in 1971, "Go Ask Alice" by Anonymous truly stretches across time and will leave you wanting to know more.....
This one is an oldie, but goodie. For any teen girl that needs a dose of positivity, this book is for you. It is chock-full of short stories about girls and women who overcame incredible odds to achieve their goals. Although it was written over a hundred years ago, it will never bore. Grab "Against the Odds" by L.M. Montgomery at your local library for a quick read that will truly uplift your spirits.
