    1. From the Publisher Sixteen year old Sid barely remembers his birth mother and has no idea who his father was Raised on an idyllic island by loving foster parents, Sid would be content to stay there forever, drawing, riding his bike, hanging out with his friend Chloe and helping out with Fariza, a newly arrived foster child But when a stranger named Phil arrives on the island with disturbing news about his birth family including a troubled younger brother Sid leaves all that is familiar to help f [...]


    2. Sid is 16 and lives with his foster parents on an island off the west coast of Canada He s a bit compulsive and somewhat of a loner but he helps out around the house, is sympathetic to other children and loves to draw He is mature beyond his years and shows amazing patience with the scared little girl Fariza who is a new member of the foster home Chloe is flirty, fun, quirky and Sid s one good friend There are hints of an attraction on Sid s part but that is never pursued in the book it s enough [...]


    3. I really struggled with this book The premise sounds fascinating, right But it s not I mean, all of the elements that the blurb promises are there the younger half brother who has been making poor choices a mother struggling with mental illness a grandmother who cares deeply but who is tired of always covering for her daughter and taking care of her grandsonHowever, the actual writing of the story is lackluster It sounds shiny an exciting cross country road trip but is, instead, a slow meander d [...]



    4. Three Little Words is not what I expected it to be In the first moments of reading the quick summary, all I expected of this book to be was an adventure for an fostered child to go find his half brother for whatever reason What I learned was much than just him needing to find his relatives It was for him to find himself.I m just playin He just needed to find his mom and brother but spoilers he only found his brother The good thing was that his mentally challenged mom ended up making her way bac [...]


    5. As a foster parent myself, I am always intrigued with books about foster care, both fiction and non fiction, which was the reason I chose this book Three Little words is set in Canada which is great because I know nothing about the Canadian foster care system I could fully enjoy the book without analyzing whether or not that s how things are really done like I do when I read an American novel about foster care.I liked that this book shows the positive side of foster care Sid has been in foster c [...]


    6. Despite having been abandoned at age two by his unpredictable mother, sixteen year old Sid short for Siddhartha has had a good life with his foster parents, Megan and Caleb, living on an island in British Columbia Other foster children come and go, but Sid, an introvert who loves to draw, stays Then one day Phil, a friend of Sid s mother, arrives on the island He tells Sid that not only has his mother disappeared, but Sid s younger half brother, Wain short for Gawain , is also missing Sid never [...]


    7. This book is about a sixteen year old boy, Sid who barely remembers anything about this childhood He has no idea who his birth mother and his birth father was Sid was raised on an island by two loving foster parents He would be content to stay there forever, drawing, riding his bike, hanging out with his friend, Chloe and helping out with Fariza, a newly arrived foster child But then when a stranger named Phil arrives on the island with very disturbing news saying something about his birth famil [...]


    8. Sid short for Siddhartha has spent virtually his entire life in the loving and supportive foster care of Caleb and Megan, and he considers them to be his mom and dad A bit of an introvert, Sid is also very empathetic making him a real asset in a home where foster children come and go His normal life is shattered when a strange man arrives on the island with Sid s half brother Wain short for Gawain Sid, by choice and obligation, gets reconnected with his birth family, learning all kinds of things [...]


    9. THIS REVIEW IS BASED ON THE GALLEY I picked up this book because of the cover, an intricately line drawn array of disparate items on a hand that is writing letters And, the titleree little words, which, thankfully are not I love you This is a little gem of a book about family relationships, friendships, stepping out on faith and giving of yourself even when you re not sure it s worth it What I like best is the way in which the characters speak to each other in a way that is hesitant even though [...]


    10. This is not a long read, but a thoughtful one The book revolves around Sid, who was abandoned by his mother as a child, but was taken in by a wonderful foster family who he loves very much, and who love him very much Sid, despite not caring about his roots, commences on a journey to help find his brother Wain, who is missing Initially, I did not really care about the characters, and I thought it was silly that a teenager was expected to help find another teenager who, just a few a days ago, he d [...]


    11. This book was one of my favorite ones because it had a lot of twists in it at the beginning, a 16 year old boy named Sid was adopted into a foster family Megan and Caleb took care of him since he was very young they adopted another kid in, Fariza, a little girl with a tragic back story Fariza does not speak at all, except for two words please and thank you Sid and Fariza draw in their notebooks every morning till the day when a guy named Phil comes to the house to talk to Sid and his foster pare [...]


    12. First things first I did not think, as some reviewers have, that Sid was too good to be true He s a 16 year old boy, and he s got a lot of anger, but he s found ways to deal with it He s also an introvert and an artist and a foster kid the eldest in a stable, loving foster family His secure world is set on edge when a stranger visits his small seaside town in British Columbia with news Sid doesn t want to hear He has a half brother, a 13 year old called Wain, who has run away Is Sid his brother [...]


    13. This book was just okay I guess this was written for a young adult and I am definitely not in that category any Maybe teenagers would relate to the characters better than I did, but I really hate to think that teenagers use the vulgar language that was used in this book I know they do, but that is besides the point The story line was good, about an adopted teenager who finds out he has a half brother he never knew I did not like that the main character called his adopted parents by their first n [...]


    14. I really enjoyed this story about Sid who comes from a dysfunctional family to live with an amazing adoptive family, Megan and Caleb There s a wonderful story in a story between Sid and his adopted sister Fariza Megan and Caleb are angels on earth, while Sid s mom, Devi, is anything but Sid s half brother Wain has problems of his own But the way they all come together restores my faith in the fact that good will always outweigh bad Always.


    15. In this book Sid, a foster kid, gets a chance to meet and help his broken biological family I loved this book because it focused around a nontraditional family and reminded the reader how important family is to us whether it s biological, adopted, foster, etc I read it in one sitting because I enjoyed the relationships Sid had with Fariza and Wain.


    16. Poignant, beautiful, heart wrenching, wonderful Imagine being a teenage boy meeting the brother you never knew you had and the mother who abandoned you as a toddler well done, Ms Harvey, very believably written.


    17. An okay book that explores adoption and family A quick read that moves fast but lacks real plot development The book brings up issues which will sure lead to discussion about what family really is However, many won t make it through the book to understand the point.


    18. This book about teenaged Sid, his relationships within his foster family, and then his introduction to his bio family is a hopeful and not judgmental read, somewhat nails the experience, or at least one experience of decent foster care.


    19. Half stars would be handy It s a 3,5 for me Nice easy reading, interesting subject foster care done right , but some situations were a bit too conveniently solved.


    20. For a teen fiction book, I thought this was well written A good book to suggest to any teen readers to help them gain empathy towards foster and adoptive kids.



    21. Social content Grade 8 and over Canadian, set in BC so lots of references to Tim s and locations within the province.


    22. It was an easy read, but just never fully pulled me into the plot I couldn t help but wonder if a first person narrative would have made it engaging.
