#1 The Help by Kathryn Stockett
I loved this book. The story is told from the point of three different characters, two are black maids working in Mississippi in the sixties and the other is a white woman who sees the harshness of the black community a lot more than her fellow society friends. I loved how into the characters you get and the way the author writes as them. It was so interesting and sad to read. It's so hard to believe that such treatment was tolerated and encouraged only such a short time ago and even still goes on in some parts of the country. I highly reccommend this book. Such a wonderful read.
