Must Read Monday: Push by Sapphire

Here's a meme that's quite fun and clever .. Must Read Monday by Fans of Fiction. Go HERE to join the fun.

The goal of this meme is to find those books others are excited about to add to your To Be Read list.
Instead of answering a question, you are basically creating intrigue for other hoppers. What makes your book so swoon-worthy? What do you absolutely have to mention so they'll read it?
On your post, you'll make an acrostic puzzle (think of it as an overview/book blurb type of thing).
When you leave comments on other posts, be sure to mention whether you're adding that book to your TBR pile, and what part convinced you to do so.
It's all about powers of persuasion, people :) You might have to think a little, but channel that inner-creative goddess (or god).

This week's topic is: An amazing controversial/banned book. I chose "Push" by Sapphire.  A hard look at important issues such as abuse, self-esteem, social classes, welfare system, educational system, and parenthood.  Incredibly heartbreaking.  Go HERE for my review.

Precious was dealt with a very
Ugly childhood.  Full of abuse at home and inconsistencies in
Society.  But she is strong willed and determine to break the
Hell of a life by pushing forward and onward. 

**Contains strong adult content in language and violence.  I recommend this book to adults only.

  1. I actually haven't read this or seen the movie. It just seems so sad. Great last line. If I'm in the mood for a contemporary, I'll check this out. Thanks Jinky!
