Liz Murray: From homeless to Harvard...
A new bestselling book charts the inspiring story of Liz Murray, who was so neglected as a child, she would share a tube of toothpaste for dinner with her sister.
Growing up in the Bronx with drug-addicted parents, Liz Murray dropped out of school and was homeless by the age of 15.
Neglected, she and her sister were forced to steal food to survive.
'We ate ice cubes because it felt like eating. We split a tube of toothpaste between us for dinner.'
