    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"
    "Great story, terrible narration"
    Overall

    I love this book so much I decided to teach it to my 11th grade class. Sadly, I could not listen to excerpts of the novel in class and was forced to read it to my students. It was read too rapidly and with zero emotion. Sapphire is a great writer, but should leave the reading to professionals.
