Breaking Night: A Memoir of Forgiveness, Survival and My Journey From Homeless to Harvard, by Liz Murray

admission to Harvard University made me look at life differently and changed the way I think. Now I follow Murray’s mantra:
‘So what, now what?’ I face my problems head-on, find solutions, and move forward with life.”
