Review:

"An inspired and inspiring debut, a The Color Purple for the nineties" ( Vogue)

"Sapphire's vibrant, unindulgent first novel has you cheering the awesome Precious on until the last page: her voice is true and the book is cool" ( Mail on Sunday)

"Part wishful prayer, part manifesto, mingling poetry and humour...her novel, while heavily weighted with adversity, is buoyant, cresting wave after voluble wave of splendid, turbulent, bracing language...Its voice demands attention, perseverance and concentration, then its music takes you over, its story grips, its current and undercurrents mesmerise, depress and then uplift... A voice to remember" ( Scotland on Sunday)

"Unforgettable...a mesmerising and uplifting read... Has all the power and vehemence of rap...brutal in its defence of the vulnerable" ( Independent)

"Harrowing yet hilarious...packs a powerful punch... The powerful writing makes the book a cracking read...a tour de force" ( Guardian)

Book Description:

The harrowing but uplifting story of an abused teenager in Harlem, adapted into a critically-acclaimed film.
