by Kathryn Stockett

The Help coverThe Help is about two black women who are maids in the 1960's and a young white lady who wants to create a book about the lives of the maids in Jackson, Mississippi. There is still segregation in town but it doesn't stop these women from writing their book in secret. These three women's destinies change with the work of a book that tells about the hard work of the black maids in white homes.

I personally loved the book because it tells you the points of view of the black maids and the young lady who was taken care of as a child by a black maid. It made me cry in the end which was very moving. It shows how racism was in the 1960's and how brutally those maids were treated.

This book has a little of everything. There is humor, romance, drama, history, and mystery. I really enjoyed The Help by Katheryn Stockett, and I hope you will too.
