Great read:

Liz Murray's Breaking Night is amazing, inspiring, and distressing. I found it painful to witness what the author, as a young girl-turned-teenager, endured. Her experiences were horrendous. I read many sections with tears pooled in my eyes. It's unfathomable to me how these sorts of things happen to children, how they happen every day, how her story is not unique. And yet she survived. She persevered. Hers is a story of true grit and determination, of unapologetic love and survival.
