5th Book Club Selection: The Help, by Kathryn Stockett

    The Help, by Kathryn Stockett is another wildly popular best selling novel turned motion picture. I have been hearing of The Help everywhere and figured I might as well find out what the hype was about. So I am choosing it as 9er Domestic's 5th Book Club Selection.       

    The Help is 2009 novel about the African American Women in Jackson, Mississippi, working as maids in white households during the 1960's. It is written in the first person, and mainly from the perspective of the three main characters Aibileen, Minny and Skeeter. This book covers the struggles and experiences of the maids, by focusing on their daily lives and the hardships they had to endure as to maintain their jobs and to earn a living.
