The Kid

A Novel

From the bestselling author of Push, a story of survival and awakening-and one young man's remarkable strength

The Kid brings us deep into the interior life of Abdul Jones, son of Sapphire's unforgettable heroine, Precious. Left alone by his mother's death to navigate in a world where love and hate sometimes hideously masquerade, forced to confront unspeakable violence, his history, and the dark corners of his own heart, Abdul claws his way toward adulthood. In a generational story that moves with the speed of thought from a Mississippi dirt farm to Harlem in its heyday, from a troubled Catholic orphanage to downtown artists' lofts, The Kid is a soaring tale of body and spirit, rooted in the hungers of flesh and of the soul.

Rezension
"A devastating voice, demanding and raw . . . an accomplished work of art." - THE LOS ANGELES TIMES

"The breathtaking velocity and visceral power of her prose soars off the page... The Kid gives us a story and a narrative voice which, like his mother's before him, should definitely be heard." - THE GUARDIAN (UK)

"[P]owerful... affecting and harrowing." - Michiko Kakutani, THE NEW YORK TIMES

"[Sapphire] remains fearlessly committed to telling uncomfortable truths... Like Push , The Kid is deeply moving and unflinching." - ESSENCE

" The Kid 's unflinching authenticity makes it tough yet ultimately rewarding to read." - PEOPLE

"Steely-eyed, full-frontal daring." - PHILADELPHIA INQUIRER
