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.
This book is so much more than the description would have you believe. I can't say anything about this book that hasn't already been said or that would make it sound trite. this book, Precious, is just amazing... It is beyond words.
