This review is from: Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival, and My Journey from Homeless to Harvard (Hardcover)
I will never be able to look at New York City the same way again after reading this story. Liz Murray is such a brave young woman for being able to share the horrific experiences of growing up with drug addicted parents in the Bronx. I cried a lot through this book and often felt physically sick, but now I feel I understand so much more about poverty and our society. Please read this book.
