Happy Wednesday everyone! The book “The Help” written by Kathryn Stockett is an excellent book and if you have not had a chance to read it you should! The book is about three women living in Jackson, Mississippi when the Civil Rights Movement began. Skeeter, who is a white young women and a writer who has just returned home from college and is floundering around. Aibileen, who is a black maid who is currently taking care of her seventeenth child, Mae Mobley, even though she realizes what’s at stake for both of them. Minney , who is a black maid, speaks and says what ever is on her mind at the expense of her employment.Aibileen and Minney are hired as help to wealthy, or trying to seem wealthy, white families. Well, that should give you some insight to what the book is about.
I’m so excited because the movie will be in the theaters August 10th. So make plans to go and see it!
