Hi!
My niece is in foster care after a very difficult childhood. She has recently had depression, walked out of jobs. However she has aspirations and says she wants a profession. I try to advise and encourage her as best I can given that she's had v few positive role models. I was wondering about giving her a book for her 18th with maybe real life stories of women who have made it against the odds? She's into working with children, horses, athletics. Any ideas? Thanks!!

Something like this but for older girls?
