How New York Saved My Life is about Meredyth, who finds a sponsor and is able to leave Belize. She arrives in New York wanting to follow her american dream. It doesn't take her long to get her first job caring for an elderly woman. The position is as a live- in which gets her away from her sponsor. After this job, she is offered another one doing the same thing.
Reading this book, I learned how if one is determined enough, you can overcome just about anything to have your dream/dreams. Life isn't always easy and sometimes you have to make hard sacrifices. I also learned how different people from each city can be. I considered this a good read and I think the author did a good job of describing her life as she lived it.
