I haven't been able to stop talking about it since I read it a year ago. You can imagine how thrilled I am that it's been made into a movie. I'm talking about one of my now favorite books of all time: The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
If you've been under a rock and haven't heard about it, the book is quite the tale of a group of women in Jackson, Mississippi. The group is comprised of Black maids and their White employers. The dynamics of the relationships are interesting, rattling, disturbing and sometimes enchanting.
As the granddaughter of women who were "domestics", hearing the other side of the story (though be it fiction) balanced some things out for me. The only thing that I wish is that Grandmas Pinkie and Sarah were here for me to talk to about it.
Have you read The Help?
What are YOU reading this summer?
