Reprint. Originally published: London: Secker & Warburg, 1996.

This is the story of Precious Jones, a sixteen-year-old illiterate black girl who has never been out of Harlem.

She is pregnant by her own father for the second time, and kicked out of school when that pregnancy becomes obvious.

Placed in an alternative teaching programme, she learns to read and write.

This is Precious's diary, in which she honestly records her relationships and life.
