She was accepted into Harvard, where she attended college classes for three years before taking time off to help her father, who died of AIDS. She returned to college, and is now taking graduate courses at Harvard. Liz gives speaking engagements around the country. A movie about her life, Homeless to Harvard, was made by Lifetime in 2003, and airs frequently.

Format: Hardcover
A great book. Emotional at times, but it shows that it is never too late to turn your life around. The author proves that a strong will and dedication can overpower any difficult situation which in her case was her entire life. I strongly recommend this book to everyone especially high school age group.

Breaking Night is the most honestly-written book I've read all year. Far too often we read about successful people who are naturally smart and it was refreshing to hear about the long hours she invested into her work to make the grade and obstacles she overcame. The book makes you reflect on your own circumstances and inspires you to achieve more and help others along the way. I admire the value she holds for her friendships and for her acknowledgment of those who helped her along the way. I will keep this book close at hand and among my favorites.

The backing was really worn but it was still readable. The content in the book is awesome. Liz Murray is brilliant for what she went through.
