Precious is 16. She's pregnant by her own father for the second time.
But then she meets Ms. Rain, a teacher (a lesbian teacher), who shows her the power of words... and Precious finds the strength to transform her life.
This is the book that the Oscar-winning movie "Precious" was based on. I blogged about the movie, here, in honor of National Teacher Appreciation Day, but this book deserves its own post, and its own spot on the list of Teen novels with significant GLBTQ Parent/Caretaker Characters.
