An electrifying first novel that shocks by its language, its circumstances, and its brutal honesty, Precious recounts a young black street-girl's horrendous and redemptive journey through a Harlem inferno. For Precious Jones, 16 and pregnant with her father's child, 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.

    " I certainly have a better understanding of why so many girls end up on the street. This book was gritty and at times very difficult to read, but it was compelling because it was about real people for me. I really wanted to see Precious rise above the horrible life she had been dealt. "

    " Everyday that I read this book, I just thought about the thousands of teenagers that have to deal with this. I read and read, because this book kept pulling me in. My sister talked me into reading and I did not want to, but the first page changed my mind. "
