Who hasn’t seen the Lifetime movie Homeless to Harvard? I loved it when it first came out, and when my mom told me Liz Murray from that movie (and from real life!) was going to be the keynote speaker at an event she was attending, I jokingly told her, “Get me her autograph.” Well, then my mom came home with this book autographed for me! It’s a good thing I totally loved it because I’ll never be able to get rid of it!
This is Liz’s story of growing up and surviving. It’s a detailed looked at her life from birth until her high school graduation, and even a quick summary at the end of life after graduation. And let me tell you, her life really sucked.
