Book 60: The Help by Kathryn Stockett
As simply as I can put it, the book is a look into the lives of black servants in 1960's Mississippi at the beginning of the Civil Rights movement. It highlights the hypocrisy of the system that has black women raising white children who grow up to look down on the same women who nurtured them.
It is a book I think I would put on a list for my kids to read when they get a little older.
Regarding the movie adaptation....Good job with the material, of course the book is always better, but this is one of the better ones.
