Publisher's Summary

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.

Too bad it's abridged

Great narrator and sound quality. Story was hard to listen to at times, but never lost my interest. It's unfortunate that only an abridged version of the novel is available, as I would have preferred to have been able to hear the entire thing.

Shocking

I saw the movie at Sundance Film Festival and had to read the book that let to it. It was a short listen, but a good one. Sad and shocking at times, but a good memoir worth listening to. Stay on the lookout for the film!
