Read in December, 2009

Difficult novel - content / story-wise - about a young African American woman, a Harlem native and resident, who experiences horrific childhood physical and sexual abuse as well as general teaching neglect. The story is told first person, which is both powerful and, since her language is limited, not as powerful as it should be. The book (published 1996) is the basis of the recently released movie "Precious." Call me a weeny, but I don't plan to see it...
