What Is The Name Of The Book The Movie Precious Is Based On?

I watched the movie Precious and it was definitely precious!
I loved the movie and it made me cry, I hope the actress wins the Oscar.
Anyway the movie Precious is based on a books written by some author. What is the name of the book Precious is based on?
Is it named the same as the movie? Who wrote the book and in which year?

Precious is based on the book Push by Sapphire.
In 1996, when the book upon which this movie is based was first published, it was titled "Push: A Novel." The film was likewise originally titled, "Push: Based on the Novel by Sapphire," but in February 2009, the movie title was changed to Precious: Based on the Novel Push by Sapphire (2009) to avoid confusion with the 2009 action film Push (2009).

The book Push is phenomenal, I read it a while back and the movie is amazing. If you haven't watched it yet, I suggest you do.
