5.0 out of 5 stars Precious: A true story, 14 Nov. 2011
By 
This review is from: Precious (Paperback)
I first came across the book "Precious" at a book reading event where the author read an excerpt from the book. After which I thought I must get a copy. My short attention span means I can only read books that are gripping and capturing effortlessly. Or I am bored.

I found this book entertaining. And enjoyed the journey of being taken through a rollercoaster of sadness and crumbs of happiness. But most importantly, the enjoyment of the humour in which the story was narrated.

Precious is certainly thought provoking and touches on the various pros and cons of fostering and adoption in terms of race and environment; and various abuses that go unnoticed/ignored in foster care. Importantly, it touches on the danger of adults playing off against one another, which is detrimental to the child.

This book arouses interest and curiousity. So get the book, sit down and enjoy the train ride...
