I am currently reading this book and I am having a very hard time. The narrator of the book is a very uneducated girl and the writing is really slowing me down. I am wondering if anyone else that has read this can tell me if it is a book that is worth pushing through for. I don't want to give up if it is a really good book.

This book is worth it, well it was to me. 

My best friend had a hard time at first too, but she got used to it as it went on.

I read the book until it was finished, I couldn't put it down.  I think if you don't focus on the way things are misspelled and just read it trusting your

brain to know what the words are supposed to be (not sure if how I worded that makes any sense) then it should smooth out for you.

I don't know, it worked for me, I hope that you can get past all of that because it is a good read. Good Luck!

I agree that it is definitely worth the read! As the previous poster said, just let your brain flow through it -- the spelling errors, etc. are so much of the characterization of Precious...
