When she was 13 years-old, Las Vegan Lynne Jasames was pregnant and headed to the foster care system. In the next eight years, Jasames would watch her mother go in and out of jail. She would age out of the foster care system. And she did all this while giving birth to three children by three different men.
Jasames writes about her life, and how she raised her sons to escape the poverty and crime that she experienced in her autobiography, "It's Okay to Cry."
