风雨哈佛路 | Breaking Night by Liz Murray

In the vein of The Glass Castle, Breaking Night is the stunning memoir of a young woman who at age fifteen was living on the streets, and who eventually made it into Harvard.

Liz Murray was born to loving but drug-addicted parents in the Bronx. In school she was taunted for her dirty clothing and lice-infested hair, eventually skipping so many classes that she was put into a girls' home. At age fifteen, when her family finally unraveled, Murray found herself on the streets. She learned to scrape by, foraging for food and riding subways all night to have a warm place to sleep.

Eventually, Murray 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. She 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 young woman's indomitable spirit to survive and prevail, against all odds.

这是一个女孩与命运抗争的真实故事。面对逆境与绝望,凭借不屈服的勇者精神、毅力和坚持,她最终考进了高等学府。 莉丝出生在纽约的贫民窟,尽管父母吸毒,莉丝仍然深爱着他们。她在毒品、艾滋、饥饿充斥的环境中度过童年。在学校,莉丝肮脏的衣着,和藏在头发里的虱子让她饱受同学嘲弄,终因逃课被送进女童院。15岁时,莉丝拼尽全力维持的家庭最终破碎,她开始流落街头,捡拾垃圾,偷东西,她整夜乘坐地铁,因为只有在这里才能温暖入梦。
