about this item

Liz Murray shares her harrowing life story, summarized by the title of the television movie based on her life, "Homeless to Harvard," in her own memoir BREAKING NIGHT. Raised by drug addicts and haunted by poverty, Murray was shamed and frightened into leaving home and school, and lived for years on the streets and public transportation. When yet another trauma motivated Murray to seize her own future, the teenager succeeded in achieving her high school diploma and earning her way to university and graduate school, and a much more healthy lifestyle than her prospects might have allowed.
The author offers an account of her journey from a fifteen-year-old living on the streets and eating garbage to her acceptance into Harvard, a feat that prompted a Lifetime movie and a successful motivational-speaking career.
