"Push" by Sapphire
Have you heard about that new movie, Precious? Its based on a book called Push by Sapphire. Chanel Toms, Washington Highlands' Teen Aide, wrote a mini-review of the book. Here's what she had to say:
Push is an award-winning novel about an illiterate girl and her struggles in life with her family and school. The character Precious feels invisible to everyone around her. Many teachers are even using the novel in the classroom. This is very risky because it is very explicit. But it keeps you glued to the pages. I enjoyed reading this novel and would recommend it to Teens at the library!
