I saw the movie Precious a few months ago and was curious to read the book on which it was based. Precious seemed to follow Push very closely, even word for word at many parts. I'm a person who usually likes the book much greater than the film, but in this case I think I may have enjoyed both equally. I do have to say that I liked how the title "Push" was worked into novel in a variety of ways.
From Amazon: "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. An intense story of adversity and the mechanisms to cope with it."
