This book has come highly recommended on many sites and from many people so I am excited to read it!
Its a historical fiction that takes place in Jackson, Mississippi in 1962. Skeeter, a girl fresh out of college, moves home to try to pursue her dream to be a writer. She is told to write about what disturbs her, and what she comes up with is a shocking book that incorporates the issues of race and the roles in society surrounding herself, her black maid who basically raised her, and a sassy black woman who has trouble holding down a job.
Should be an interesting read! Has anyone read this book?
