  2. I got this book for Christmas and finished it today – Dec 26. I couldn’t put it down. What a profound, troubling yet inspirational story. I loved every word. But it’s unfinished. The reader needs to know what happens next. Precious’ story is way too interesting to stop now. We need to know what she’s going to do with her life. Please, Please Sapphire, write a sequel. Asap.
