THE HELP by Kathryn Stockett

Unknown-14

Aibileen is a black maid in 1962 Jackson, Mississippi, who’s always taken orders quietly, but lately she’s unable to hold her bitterness back. Her friend Minny has never held her tongue but now must somehow keep secrets about her employer that leave her speechless. White socialite Skeeter just graduated college. She’s full of ambition, but without a husband, she’s considered a failure. Together, these seemingly different women join together to write a tell-all book about work as a black maid in the South, that could forever alter their destinies and the life of a small town.

Comments: What an amazing novel this is. So sad and so amazing. I love the people, the tension, the stakes. However it is very upsetting in parts. I would recommend this for any adult interested in this part of American history.
