The Help
by Kathryn Stockett
Historical Fiction

Review #1
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
“The Help” takes place in the early 1960s and focuses on African American maids working for white families and the unfair treatment they must go through. This book focuses on the perspectives of Minny, Abileen, and Skeeter. Overall, “The Help” is an amazing book.

Review #2
* * * Stars (Pretty good)
This a great book. It tells the story of how despite the different views on race and religion, there does exist some form of moral justice (in an unjust society).

Review #3
* * * * * Stars (Amazing!)
A journalist, Skeeter, starts to write what it is like to be a colored maid in Mississippi, but has to risk everything to get the book published. I like this book because it is inspiring and shows what it means to truly care about something and fight for it.
