Book Review

I just finished up reading a phenomenal summer read titled, "The Help" by Kathryn Stockett. I definitely recommend it. The book is based out of Jackson, Mississippi in the early 1960's. The book has an entire cast of characters but mainly focuses on three in particular:

  • Skeeter--a twenty-two-year old graduate that has a dream of writing one day but her mother has other ideas in mine...like being a proper southern lady, getting married, and being like all the other ladies in town. But, she has plans of her own that create the entire story for this novel.


  • Aibileen--a black maid raising her seventeenth white child who decides to take a stand for what she believes in by telling her story.


  • Minny--a black maid that is s-p-u-n-k-y! She also decides to tell her story of working as a maid for over 30 years.


  • It really is difficult to describe the greatness of this book but I must say that reading it is a must for this summer! But the icing on the cake is that it's being made into a movie that will be out in August. Here's the preview:
