Push bog af Sapphire uforkortet engelsk bog
Precious is sixteen, black and pregnant by her father for the second time in four years. Overweight, illiterate and ritually abused by her mother, Precious is kicked out of school when her pregnancy becomes obvious.
Push recounts a young black street-girl's horrendous and redemptive journey through a Harlem inferno.
Miraculous hope appears and the world begins to open up for her when a courageous, determined teacher bullies, cajoles, and inspires her to learn to read, to define her own feelings and set them down in a diary.
Den Oscarvindende film Precious bygger på denne fantastiske bog. Fiktion. NB. Ikke for sarte sjæle!
