I read this book because a movie based on it is coming out soon and it caught my attention. There are some very disturbing passages within the book that will shock the living daylights out of you. Some passages made me cry, but there are also some very moving passages about never giving up no matter how bad a hand you have been dealt. This book is for mature readers only.

This book is for MATURE readers only!!!! It’s a difficult book to read, to think that this is someone’s life. Great book but it’s very descriptive of the violence and molestation. However it does make you appreciate your situation that much more.

Push the novel by poet/author Saphire is vividly description, well written, and poetically phrased. I found myself drawn into the environment of the main character "Precious" and the extremely abusive relationship she has lived in all her young adult life. At times it was hard to read about the encounters she had. This story holds no punches. I look forward to the upcoming film version of this book.
