THE KID, Sequel to “PRECIOUS”, Sold by Sapphire

Ramona Lofton, who goes by the pen name Sapphire, has recently sold her second novel to Penguin Press. Lofton’s first novel, “Push,” was sold to Penguin Press as well.

Her second novel, entitled “The Kid,” is generally considered to be a sequel to “Push.” In the second book, the main character’s son (from “Push”) is followed through life as he grows into manhood. He is described as being alone in life and possessing within him the soul of an artist.

Lofton’s first novel was adapted for the big screen as the movie “Precious.” Screenwriter Geoffrey Fletcher earned an Oscar for the script and Mo’Nique the best supporting Oscar. Gabourey Sidibe was nominated for the best actress Oscar as well for her role.
