The Help – A book review

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.

Page number: 522

Setting: Jackson, Mississippi

Time period: 1960’s

Genre: Novel

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.

Overall rating: * * * * (4/5)

Author profile

I am 19 years old. I would describe myself as a spunky and happy person. I love to read, draw, play the piano, and be outside. I love music, especially good ole classic rock. You can't go wrong with a saxophone and guitar solo in one song (i am looking at you Pink Floyd).
