Breaking Night Book Review

Rebecca Fedder, another member of the Women's netWork in Manistee wrote this review of the book "Breaking Night"

BREAKING NIGHT – by Liz Murray

This is an inspiring true story of a young woman who overcame incredible odds
to graduate from Harvard. She was born to drug-addicted parents and as a teenager skipped so many classes at school, she was put into a girls home. At age 15, she
found herself on the street and homeless. She decided she had to take control of
her life and went back to high school, completing it in 2 years. After graduation,
she was awarded a scholarship to Harvard through the New York Times. This is
a story of survival and shows what will and determination can accomplish. She
is to be commended for her present work of motivational speeches and helping
others find meaning in their lives.
