Product note

Claireece Precious Jones endures unimaginable hardships in her young life. Abused by her mother, raped by her father, she grows up poor, angry, illiterate, fat, unloved and generally unnoticed. So what better way to learn about her than through her own, halting dialect. That is the device deployed in the first novel by poet and singer Sapphire. "Sometimes I wish I was not alive," Precious says. "But I don't know how to die. Ain' no plug to pull out. 'N no matter how bad I feel my heart don't stop beating and my eyes open in the morning." An intense story of adversity and the mechanisms to cope with it.

Short Desription

Relentless, remorseless, and inspirational, this "horrific, hope-filled story" (Newsday) is certain to haunt a generation of readers. Precious Jones, 16 years old and pregnant by her father with her second child, meets a determined and highly radical teacher who takes her on a journey of transformation and redemption.

5 out of 5 stars Precious will always be, May 28, 2009
By renee
I know Precious. Ive met her so many times. Shes everywhere. Her background upsets my sensitivities. So I cry, but have no recourse but to turn away like so many others. I was not there to rescue her, but lived through the pain with her when she unraveled the raw,sick hell she endured. There is hope for her, but it is blurred by the blatant honesty that so many cannot deal with. Her wings were clipped, but she doesnt accept that she cannot fly. I loved her, but was afraid of her. Her potential and spirit was tested to the core, but she decided how her life would unfold. This author is exceptionally talented. I have read an incredible amount of books but she did what no author has done. She touched my soul. Precious is fiction. But Precious is definitely non-fiction. She has a secret few will tell. I highly reccommend this book. I am a reviewer for rambles.net, reviewing under the name Renee Harmon and this book without a doubt deserves a 5 star rating.
