    An electrifying first novel that shocks by its language, its circumstances, and its brutal honesty, Push 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.

    Sarah Dumoulin says: "Too bad it's abridged"
    "Gritty...but too short"
    Overall

    I downloaded this book after seeing a preview of the film and I must say that the first-person narration gives it a richness that draws the listener in. However, I was disappointed that the audiobook was so short and that there wasn't any kind of epilogue.
