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 15, Liz found herself on the streets when her family finally unraveled. She learned to scrape by, foraging for food and riding subways all night to have a warm place to sleep. Then, when Liz's mother died of AIDS, she decided to take control of her own destiny.

Liz's story is raw and inspirational. Knowing that someone overcame such trials and tribulations makes me try harder. Liz is honest and such an amazing person. Such a gift to hear her story. Great book!!!

This book is disappointing. You want to feel bad for her, but her immaturity and the vulgar language prevent you from doing so. The decisions she makes are so poor, you wonder about her sanity. In addition, she never takes responsibility for anything she does so it is hard to trust anything she says. This is a book about an interesting topic, but told in a vulgar and immature way.

Don Piper's incredible true story continues to expand its reach to more people than ever before. After a semi truck collided with Don Piper's car, he was pronounced dead at the scene. For the next 90 minutes, he experienced the glories of heaven. Back on earth, a passing minister felt led to stop and pray for the accident victim even though he was told Piper was dead. Miraculously, Piper came back to life, and the pleasure of heaven was replaced by a long and painful recovery.

The book is very well written and the author does a great job of narrating it. However, 90% of it is the story of his recovery from a horrible accident. The chapter on his experience in heaven is very good... I just wish there had been more of it. I kept hoping he would go back to his near death experience.
