This paper explains that Sapphire in her novel "Push" illustrates the very private life of one teenage girl in such a dramatic and forceful way that a reader cannot help but keep turning the pages. The novel's main theme, the author suggests, is about judging both by Claireece and about Claireece. The paper suggests that, although at times the writing style is somewhat pedestrian, the realistic construction of the main protagonist Clareece and other characters and the delicate balance of plot and dialogue make this book an outstanding read.

From the Paper:

"I found that as much as Claireece was presented in the beginning of the story with the facts laid out about her children and her state of affairs with her family there is nothing in the dialogue that suggests that the audience should pity her and there is nothing in the latter presentation of the facts that insists that Claireece wants to have empathy; she is merely telling a tale, her story as best as she can relating to the audience only the facts."
