The Help

I just finished this book yesterday I believe and it was amazing! The Help by Kathryn Stockett is probably one of the best books that I have read. Her writing is so good and pretty realistic. She got the southern accent perfectly through words which is hard to do. I know a lot of people were hesitant about this book (ahemmm mother), because they thought it was going to focus on how white people always "have" to come to the rescue, but once you read the book you notice that it really focuses on the daily life of the help (maids) and the segregation that was still going strong in Mississippi at the time. It's interesting to see the influence that the help had on their white families and vice versa. I strongly recommend this book for everyone! I haven't seen the movie yet, because I was waiting to finish the book, but I'm so excited! Happy New Year's Eve my loves!!! 2012 is our year! (*
p.s- Christmas outfit post is coming soon
