4 discs (5 hours 5 mins)

Precious Jones, an illiterate sixteen-year-old, has up unitl now been invisible to the father who rapes her, the mother who batters her, and to the authorities who dismiss her as jsut one o fHarlem'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.

My personal Review:  This book is excellent But it is very blunt and written exactly like whatever the author thought was written down in the book, expletives and all.  If I had read this vs. listening to it, im not sure that I would have been able to finish it because of the manner of which it is written.

If you liked the book check out the movie:
