If you haven’t already, I suggest you The Help by Kathryn Stockett.
Skeeter wants to write something different. Living in Jackson, Mississippi in the 60’s, she knows that writing life from the view of the colored help is risky. With the help of her friend’s maid, Abilileen, and Abilieen’s close friend, Minny, they secretly write what most are afraid to speak.

Thoughts: I really liked this book. I think that I learned that some people are just mean and you can try to make a stand, but some people won’t change. We can just inform others and encourage them to be kinder to everyone.
