Excellent! Book in good condition! Good Reading, mild language.


Profound & Moving

by piazia on Apr 29, 2010

Profound and moving are the least that can be said for this book. It was also shocking and horrifying. The author had to have endured some of the things she wrote about to be able to write about them so vividly. All human beings need to read this book. It is mind bending that people could treat each other this way. Even though the ending was not happy I still recommend everyone read this book.

Push is a searing, honest and courageous look at the conditions many young girls suffer. Some, like Precious Jones, are able to make it out of their private hell by tapping into their inner strength and by utilizing the hands held out by teachers and social workers.

Push is the story of a teenage girl, named Precious, trapped in a world of physical, emotional and sexual abuse which is further complicated by the ramifications of poverty. Her life is dominated by the rules of "do not tell," do not be seen/noticed" and "do not trust/let anyone close to you." Despite all of the obstacles that Precious must face, so many that it defies the most rational mind, she begins to flourish through the help of a caring teacher, social worker and friends. Push is a powerful and moving story that reminds us of our resilient power and the triumph of the human spirit.


Heart touching

by Pata217 on Dec 24, 2009

After seeing the movie, I wanted to read the book. The book answered many of the questions left out of the movie. This is a heart wrenching story that should be read by everyone involved in the social services field.
