The Help

The Help is one of the best books I’ve ever read. It is about Jackson, Mississippi in the 1960’s. The main characters whos perspective the story is written from, are Skeeter, a young, white woman who has just graduated from Ole Miss. And the others are Aibeleen and Minny, two black maids. Skeeter helps the maids to write a book of their stories of working for white women, and how they are treated by the woman.

The story is funny at times, sad at times, but overall a wonderful story. I would definitely recommend it to anyone trying to find something else to read this summer!
