"The acclaimed book that inspired Precious, the Sundance Film Festival winner from Lee Daniels
Even though the film Precious packs quite a wallop, the gritty realism of the novel upon which the movie is based is even more intense. --NPR Precious Jones, an illiterate sixteen-year-old, has up until now been invisible to the father who rapes her and the mother who batters her and to the authorities who dismiss her as just one more of Harlem's casualties. But when Precious, pregnant with a second child by her father, meets a determined and radical teacher, we follow her on a journey of education and enlightenment as she learns not only how to write about her life, but how to make it truly her own for the first time."
