Push - Sapphire
I resisted the movie Precious for a long time, thinking it would be too disturbing and hopeless, but when it came on cable I caved in and watched it. I was surprised at how full of hope it was, even though much of the subject matter is indeed disturbing, and I was glad I watched it after all. When I found the book on the Library Sale shelves I eagerly purchased it and I felt the same way - it's a book that is brimming with hope even though the events and the subject matter are very hopeless and sad. I know why they changed the movie's title but "Push" is a perfect title to show how people have to struggle and fight to get to something better.
