As I Remember It

2013 Second Place Burt Award for First Nations, Inuit and Métis Young Adult Literature
Publisher: 
Theytus Books

As I Remember It tells the story of the author’s own childhood and adolescence. She gives first-person insight into the issues and struggles faced by foster children and teens. She draws the reader in, with her unblinking portrait of a young girl who triumphs over rejection and abuse, thanks to her indomitable spirit and the efforts of a pair of unique foster parents.

Author: Born in Northern Manitoba, and a foster child, Tara Lee Morin lives in a small town in northern B.C. She is currently writing a sequel to her memoir As I Remember It, as well as an illustrated children’s book about children entering foster care. 

Publisher: Theytus Books

"Tara Lee Morin unflinchingly and unapologetically recounts the harrowing experiences of her young life, and in doing so gives voice to the many marginalized members of Canada’s Indigenous communities. As I Remember It, like In Search of April Raintree, Halfbreed, and Thunder Through My Veins, has the potential to save lives." — Jury, Burt Award for First Nations, Métis and Inuit Literature
