Push: A Book Review

This weekend I got together with the girls from book club. The book we read was "Push" by Sapphire. The general consensus was that we all enjoyed this book, as much as you could enjoy a book with this kind of content. This book follows a young girl named Precious who is abused by her mother, and raped by her father. She is illiterate, going to school and trying to raise her son at the age of 16. It talks about her struggles and how she perseveres. This was one of the more intense book club choices but we tend to go back and forth between something serious and something light hearted.
We usually only discuss the book for about 30 minutes and spend the other hour and a half catching up on life and drinking wine. Always a good time!
