When Liz's mother died of AIDS, she decided to take control of her own destiny and go back to high school, often completing her assignments in the hallways and subway stations where she slept. Liz squeezed four years of high school into two, while homeless; won a New York Times scholarship; and made it into the Ivy League.
Breaking Night is an unforgettable and beautifully written story of one woman's indomitable spirit to survive and prevail, against all odds.

Would you listen to Breaking Night again? Why?
After listening to this detailed autobiography, one has to simply ask oneself: After all, are my circumstances really that bad? Am I really gonna blame my parents' divorce, mum's illness, my brothers stupidity for loosing all our family's saving...am I really really gona blame them for the mental state I am in? Or should I just look, like Liz Murray did, at what possibilities I have and to chose every moment another empowering choice?
The story made me rethink my own opinions and it let me question my own capability.
I would def. recomment this book to everyone who simply seeks for inspiration and hope that things can turn well, despite all your difficulties.
Hope this makes sense.
