Push - Sapphire Despite all the horrific things that happen to the main character in this story, I always felt a thread of hope because Precious was so determined and resilient, so open to learning, and always fighting against her situation. I really came to like Precious and wanted to read more of her story. Unfortunately, the book goes far too fast, skipping over months, and giving us little more than the circumstances Precious was living in. I would have liked the author to expand on Precious's experiences at the alternative school, her interactions with Ms Rain and her classmates, how did she cope with her troubling home life, and what happened afterwards.
